  • Paul is employed as the Assistant Dean, The University of Melbourne Academic Centre, Royal Children's Hospital; Stevenson Professor and Head of Department of Paediatrics, The University of Melbourne. He is also a Paediatric Haematologist at the Royal Children’s Hospital.

    Paul graduated from Monash Medical School with honours in 1988. He achieved dual Fellowship of RACP/RCPA in 1997 as a paediatric haematologist. His MD (Monash) was completed in 2003 and he obtained Fellowship of ACCP in 2001. During 1996-98 Paul worked as a Research Fellow in the Department of Paediatrics, McMaster University, Hamilton Ontario, completing a Masters of Science (Health Research Methodology).
    Paul returned to Melbourne in 1998 to commence as Laboratory Haematologist, Women’s and Children’s Health Care Network. Within 12 months Paul was appointed Acting Director, Division of Laboratory Services and subsequently was formally appointed Director and was charged with rebuilding Laboratory Services. This was a successful process with considerable improvements achieved in quality systems, clinical interfacing, management and financial accountability. In 2001 Paul was awarded the RCH Gold Medal, the youngest ever recipient, for his efforts in dealing with the organ retention after autopsy issue.

    Paul has remained an active educator, being involved in undergraduate and post graduate teaching.

    Paul is a reviewer for many international journals and has published extensively in the fields of developmental haemostasis and paediatric thrombosis and anticoagulation, co authoring the only major textbook in the field (Thromboembolic complications during infancy and childhood. Andrew M, Monagle P, Brooker L. Decker Inc. 2000) as well as multiple chapters in other major textbooks. Paul has significant international collaborations and has published over 110 peer reviewed papers, in addition to numerous reviews.
