Tim provides training, research and policy analysis skills for UNSW’s Gendered Violence & Research Network. He is a registered psychologist who has worked in both government and non - government organisations as a direct care worker supporting people with disabilities, an educator and counsellor specialising in sexuality and disability issues, a Professional Member of the Guardianship Tribunal NSW, and for over 15 years, as a psychologist with people with HIV.
He was an accredited counsellor with the Victims Compensation Tribunal providing psychological intervention and support to people who experienced sexual and physical assaults. His work in HIV led him to pursue academic research in this area, which in turn led him to cancer research with emphases on the experiences of informal cancer carers, the impact of cancer on sexuality and relationships, fertility, and quality of life issues.
Since completing his PhD, he has worked in the Schools of Psychology and Medicine at the University of Western Sydney, as Manager of Advocacy and Resources at Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, and the Schools of Medicine and Social Sciences at UNSW before joining the Gendered Violence Research Network.
