Research Output per year
Tim's passion for Information Technology and Communications started in highschool and from a love of computing and video games. He studied programming at TAFE and was then accepted into the Bachelor of Information Technology. Tim started casual teaching the third year of his undergrad. He discovered how much he enjoyed interacting with students and being able to guide them through their Univeristy careers.
Tim went on to complete his Honours degree, in the field of Digital Preservation and Metadata Standards. He is now a PhD student, still focused on metadata, but exploring other applications such as digital forensics. Tim has completed his first semester as a primrary lecturer in topics COMP3721 - Enterprise Information Security and COMP1210 - Cybersecurity for a Connected World. He hopes to become a Topic Coordinator, combining his passion for Information Security and working with students.
Tim's research interests involve the following topics:
Metadata: As the basis for the following fields.
Metadata Standards: Standardising the way metadata is captured, how it is stored and displayed. Standardising naming conventions and bringing together a fragmented world of many standards into one, user friendly standard which further allows automation to be achieved.
Digital Preservation: Preserving our digital history, the provenance and digital capabilities of current and future digital content.
Digital Forensics & Cyber Crime: Investigating the use of metadata to catch peperpetrators through both online and physical means.
