Tim has some managerial experience as the Team Leader for Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology services in a busy community health care centre.

His research to date, has focused on musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and cardiovascular health. He is also interested in precision health, particularly how health literacy interventions as well as biomarkers can be used to monitor and improve health. Tim’s PhD investigated the epidemiology of sports injury in elite junior team sport, identifying links between load and injury, impacted by player wellness (stress, soreness and sleep). He maintains an active interest in this area, supervising higher degree by research students in team collective behaviour, exercise-based interventions for musculoskeletal conditions and the effects of environmental conditions on human physiology and performance. Tim has expertise in project management across observational studies as well as in the implementation of a range of systematic review types (intervention, diagnostic/prognostic and scoping reviews).
