Paul is a specialist in the history of twentieth-century science and technology. His research to date has focused upon Soviet science and technology. In recent years, he has sought to evaluate the extent to which the American, German, Brazilian, Norwegian, and East Europe experience differs from that of the Soviet Union. Paul runs marathons, and worries about the terrible human and ecological costs of snowmobiles, jet-skis and other ATVs.
