Tim’s research interests are in gender and health, and in particular on understanding and responding to men’s specific sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs.  His doctoral work focuses on Malawi, where he is co-ordinating quantitative and qualitative research looking at men’s SRH attitudes and practices. Tim holds a Masters in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and teaches at the University of Cape Town (UCT) – where he is an Honorary Lecturer – and at UCL. He is a part-time PhD student at IGH, and works full-time for a South African NGO, Sonke Gender Justice, which seeks to scale-up interventions in Africa which engage men in promoting gender equality, and preventing HIV and gender-based violence. Tim has previously worked with the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), and the World Health Organisation. He has published in a range of publications and books.
