Descriptive Data: (report abuse)
Paul Jobling is a Product Manager working for Kognitio, a developer of dedicated parallel database software running on commodity blade hardware platform. He obtained his degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Reading University in 1985, and his interests include the eclectic mix of beatmix DJing, soccer, and intelligent systems.

He was part of the team (along with Chris Nash, Bob Burrowes, and Randy Dunaieff) who discovered the (then) 7th and 10th largest primes in late 1998/early 1999. The first of these was the largest non-Mersenne prime.

He wrote the NewPGen program, which is used to speed up all manner of searches for primes by performing very rapid presieving.
