Biography

PhD: "Training loads, player wellness and injury risk in elite junior Australian football players"

Clinical:

As an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) with a focus on sports science and sports medicine, Tim excels in monitoring and managing athlete training to optimise performance and prevent injuries. Building on Tim's expertise in helping to manage risk factors for chronic disease, Tim also applies his creativity as a practitioner to utilise innovative strategies for both the clinical and elite sporting environments. Tim aims to inspire others to achieve optimal health and wellness through exercise and the prevention of injuries. Tim has supervised over 20 students in the applied sports science/injury setting as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students in the clinical setting. These students have been based at a number of Victorian and South Australian universities.  Tim is committed to high-quality teaching, scholarship and eager to pursue research opportunities across a range of interest areas.
