Research:
Paul is a member of the Information Systems for Social Impact Research Group in BTE at Swinburne. His research focuses on the challenges that present at the interface between people, technology and organisations in 3 critical areas: (1) digital asset management, including enterprise information and personal information management; (2) emerging information technologies and their impact on human information behaviour; (3) information governance in business and e-government contexts. Paul approaches his research from the interpretative tradtions of digital documentary practice: he is interested in the challenges that governing and managing  information resources (digital documents & records), digital representation & identity, human information behaviour bring to businesses and government and, he applies expertise in policy analysis, digital ethnography and content analysis to inform research into these changing dimensions of the digital economy.

Current research activities include:
  (1) information governance of digital platforms in the Circular Economy ; (2) Human information behaviour in new wave tech (self tracking, smart home technologies), and personal information management; (3) information protection, assurance and governance of national ID programs.
