Tim's research interests are in order and disorder in the structure of biological systems, notably the interactions in biological materials within contemporary to archaeological contexts.
Tim manages 8 schools within a wide regional geographical spread. Since his arrival, the faculty has already rejuvenated the management structure of the faculty and developed two major themes for the faculty as Food and Water Security and Health Ageing. Tim has made a significant improvement to the scrutiny, management and therefore the financial viability of the human and animal clinics. Tim has brought his strong belief in equality to the University and recently completed a graduate certificate in Wiradjuri to show his commitment to the aboriginal people on whose land Charles Sturt University is located.
