Paul is Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. He was Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Studies at Dickinson College during the 2014-2015 academic year and completed his Ph.D. at Georgetown

University. His dissertation was on the domestic politics of U.S. foreign policy.

Paul is a 2005 Mitchell Scholar. He received a Master's Degree in Politics from University College Dublin. Paul's thesis examined the historic and contemporary role of the Irish language in Irish Nationalism. He interned at the Economic and Social Research Institute and was a guest on several local radio and national TV programs discussing international relations and the US political system. Studying in Ireland with a diverse population of students from around Europe and the world gave Paul great insight into the international relations objectives and priorities of other countries as well as a deeper understanding of how US foreign policy is perceived.

Paul hopes to focus his professional career on public service either through continued scholarship and lecturing in an academic setting or by working with an international policy making organization.

Paul obtained his undergraduate degree from Indiana University.
