Outside of research, Paul is passionate about teaching econometrics, and was the recipient of the Dean's Award for Excellence in Teaching (2020) from The University of Melbourne. In 2019, Paul was a member of the University of Melbourne team which won the Econometric Games, a case competition for graduate students from the world's top universities.
