Hi, I’m Paul and I learn from the human brain to make computers smarter. Engineering is amazing at making so much of our everyday life safer, easier and more fun. I love computer games and am passionate about improving how computers work. I take inspiration from the human brain and body and have to be creative, and determined, to apply that knowledge to make better computers and robots.

Paul learns from the human brain to make computers smarter. He is really interested in human vision and how computers recognise images. Try his Shark in the Park inspired card game – what can you see to make connections between the images?
Seeing, and looking in the right place, is really important for juggling – watch our circus performers juggle and build up your skills from one ball to many
