Paul’s research interests are concerned with understanding the nuances of socio-economic impact and development as they interact with people, places and policy. Paul utilises a range of approaches found at the intersection of Economics, Sociology and Psychology, including: socio-economic impact analysis, local economic modelling action research, social indicator development and social cost-benefit analysis. Paul is currently applying Social Return on Investment (SROI) to impact measurement in the fields of community health, employment inclusivity and farmer wellbeing; and amongst others is a contributor to the AHRC Treescapes and Defra Local Perspectives projects. Paul is a Wellbeing Facilitator for the University, and was the UoA Coordinator for the CCRI’s REF submissions of 2014 and 2021.
