Tim is currently a full-time PhD candidate with the AERC, under the supervision of Dr Paul Memmott. The primary interest of his thesis topic is ethno-architecture. His fieldwork is with the Girramay, Jirrbal and Gulngay people in the Wet Tropics Region of northeastern Queensland.

Tim was engaged as a Research Assistant by the AERC between 1991 and 1993, during which time he assisted with the compilation of the Australian entries for the World Encyclopedia of Vernacular Architecture, and thereby developed an interest in Aboriginal architecture.
