Paul holds a doctorate in physics and a bachelors in philosophy. His career began with running large projects for a major research laboratory, and continued with a long, and award-winning run as a professor at the University of Michigan. He has authored nearly 300 articles published in formal academic journals, and two editions of a textbook.
Paul brings substantial experience in research, and in understanding and developing models of uncertain systems, from his decades working as a physicist. He at times applies these skills to matters of public importance beyond physics. This site will include such material.
Paul is also a life-long reader of works on economics, finance, and investment. He embraces a value-investing approach, which led him to more recently begin writing on the economy and investments at SeekingAlpha.com. He wrote his first Monte Carlo model aimed at investments in 2006. He has intensively researched and modeled a wide variety of portfolio options. Some of his work on these things will end up here too
