Tim has worked at Barts Health for 15 years and was appointed Professor Emergency Medicine at QMUL and BH in 2012. In 2018 he moved to Hamad General Hospital, Doha. He divides his academic time between teaching and research. His main interests are point of care testing, resuscitation, ultrasound, and education. His research time is focussed facilitating and recruiting to large multicentre studies. He has published around 80 papers. His current main focus is leading the QMUL Emergency & Resuscitation MSc. He supervises the academic trainees and academic students in their research programs and runs the undergraduate and some of the post-graduate teaching programs for QMUL. He provides clinical governance to East Anglia Air Ambulance. Having failed to achieve a work life balance he attempted to integrate them, a his is why he kite-surfs and sails so badly.
