Paul is the Founder and CEO of BlueTech Research, the leading global intelligence firm focused on water innovation.  He started his career in biochemistry working alongside pioneering environmentalists and researching the effects of deforestation on water quality. Later in his career, whilst working as an engineering consultant, he observed the prolonged length of time it took to bring water technologies to the marketplace, so he founded BlueTech Research in 2011 to support innovation.

Paul’s latest project “Brave Blue World” seeks to increase awareness of existing solutions to the water crisis, he co-produced the documentary that has attracted support from a host of A-list celebrities. Paul regularly lectures and has recently spoken at Davos 2020, Web Summit 2020 and at Harvard and Cambridge Universities.

Paul now advises many global Fortune 500 firms including L’Oréal, Microsoft and PepsiCo on their water strategy policies and has completed a PhD in Water Innovation at Wageningen University.
