Tim will work in collaboration with a variety of enterprises within the fields of health and life sciences to support Research and Innovation projects.
Tim’s research interests on the ATiC project include the creative possibilities for the large amounts of user metrics and bio data that are harvested on our personal devices, and how these can be further developed into products and software. Interests include how such data be accounted for and analysed in the future by designers, scientists, engineers and clinicians to prevent disease and injury and guide our health and wellbeing.
Tim is currently researching 3D printing, interactive VR, eye tracking technology and interpreting user metrics and interacting with digital software to innovate health, fitness and wellbeing.
