His significant experience in the subsurface investigation, laboratory testing, analysis, and static and seismic design of earth structures and dikes. Paul is a leader in firm wide initiatives for providing geotechnical and geostructural services to industrial clients and specialty geotechnical, EPCs, and general contractors for infrastructure projects. He has been the engineer-of-record for several major landfill expansions and foundation designs.

A nationally recognized practitioner in coal combustion residuals (CCR) engineering, Paul has done seminal research on the geotechnical aspects of fly ash for the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and is the lead or co-author on five EPRI documents.

Paul is the author of seven Federal Highway Administration/National Highway Institute publications on ground anchors, soil nailing, micropiles, and load and resistance factor design for earth retaining systems. He is a certified instructor for the National Highway Institute. Paul is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers' Earth Retaining Structures Committee and was the 2004 recipient of the Arthur Casagrande award for contributions to the design of ground anchors and earth retaining systems. He is also a member of the Deep Foundation Institute's Soil Mixing committee.
