Biographical details

After completing a bachelor degree in Exercise and Sport Science (EXSS) and a master in Clinical Rehabilitation at The University of Sydney Tim began his career in the field of clinical exercise physiology. He implemented his skills using exercise as a medicine for a range of chronic diseases. During this time he guided university students in the practical implementation of exercise physiology and remained closely connected to The University of Sydney, employed as a tutor and project assistant.

After taking some time off to travel and volunteer his skills as an exercise physiologist and musician Tim was employed as manager and Exercise Physiologist in the FitAbility clinic at The University of Sydney. He went on to become the Clinical Educator Coordinator for the Discipline of EXSS. Since then Tim has contributed to the university in a number of roles including tutor, research assistant and project management. He is currently lecturing undergraduate and postgraduate students as an Associate Lecturer in EXSS. Tim continues to study at the university, completing a PhD on mitigating heat-related fatigue in a healthy and multiple sclerosis population. This has allowed him to combine and further develop his skills and interests in exercise physiology, performance, music and thermoregulatory physiology.
