Paul is Hope's campus representative on the Executive Committee of the Midstates Consortium for Math and Science.
He is also the webmaster for the Midstates Consortium and the Michigan section of the MAA.
As a Phi Beta Kappa member, Paul also enjoys helping with Hope's PBK chapter.
Past student research projects have been in mathematical biology (analyzing bean beetle egg development, identifying kinds of birds singing in recordings), computational chemistry (predicting changes in Gibbs free energy in proteins) and high-dimensional data analysis (automated handwritten digit classification).
He frequently travels with students to conferences, such as: To make STEM research accessible, Paul has also co-developed course-based research experiences for first-year students such as the Day1: Great Lakes program, which combines a field research experience on the dunes of Lake Michigan, a statistics course that analyzes real Great Lakes data and a First Year Seminar discussing Great Lakes issues.
His research interests have broadened to include studying the shape of high-dimensional data sets (topological data analysis) and using machine learning for interdisciplinary research projects that engage undergraduates.
Paul's research student Jiyi Jiang won an outstanding presentation award at the 2015 Mathematical Association of America (MAA) Math Fest, the second largest annual math conference in the U. Also, his research students Allison Vander Stoep and Taylor Rink each won a Janet L.
