Paul Stott

Paul Stott

Senior Lecturer, Newcastle University

Paul Stott is a naval architect who has held line management positions in shipyards and has a wide-ranging background in international market research and strategic planning. Paul entered academia in 2010 after spending twenty six years in the marine industries. Working initially as a production and project manager in the shipyards of North East England he then spent twenty two years as a consultant working for companies and institutional clients in around forty countries, developing a considerable reputation in the field.

My research interests are related to the interface between marine industries and markets, in particular competitiveness and price / subsidy. Interests include market forecasting, metrics and performance measurement, and the role of non-governmental organisations such as the WTO and OECD in regulating shipping markets.

I am active in the Low Carbon Shipping Consortium (http://www.lowcarbonshipping.co.uk/), a research project which started in January 2010. It is majority funded by UK government research funding - the RCUK energy programme has committed £1.7 million over 3 years - but is also supported financially and in-kind by a number of industry partners including Lloyd’s Register, Rolls Royce, Shell and BMT. LCS is jointly run between five UK universities: Newcastle, UCL, Plymouth, Hull and Strathclyde. My contribution has been in the field of the effects of the expansion of the Panama Canal on ship design (ini particular in the bulk sectors) and in understanding the investment climate for ship owners in relation to retro-fitting of carbon-reducing technologies. Two papers from me have stemmed from this source.

Previous research interests have included control of distortion in thin plate structures in shipyard construction.
