Tim graduated from Northumbria University in 2013 with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology, and then continued on to complete an MRes in Psychology in 2014. Later, Tim joined the BPNRC after being awarded a PhD studentship to investigate the effects of polyphenol supplementationÂ on cerebral blood flow & cognition
In 2014, Tim began his PhD programme supervised by, Dr Emma Wightman, Prof David Kennedy & Dr Stuart Goodall. Utilising Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) and the centre's state of the art environmental chamber, Tim's research focuses upon the effects of cognition and cerebral blood flow after consuming polyphenolsÂ across hypoxic and normoxic conditions.
Currently, Tim is investigating the effects of cerebral blood flow and cognition,Â in acute supplementation of a non-flavonoid polyphenol, resveratrol (most commonly associated with red wine) whilst under hypoxic conditions. In addition, he is examining the effects that resveratrol has on full body metabolism during high cognitive demand.
