Tim was born and raised in Wisconsin. It’s really no joke that some of the best cheese this country has to offer is from his home state! After earning his B.S. at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater, he decided that his interest in science, and specifically electrochemistry, was not yet satisfied. Under the direction of Johna Leddy, Tim wrote a proposal to study the bioelectrocatalytic effect of cyanobacteria immobilized onto electrodes, for the purpose of sustained production of ammonia, and was funded by the Iowa Energy Center setting graduate research in motion. He defended his dissertation in 2012 and just a few weeks later began his career at Pine Research Instrumentation (Durham, NC) and has enjoyed his nearly decade long tenure there ever since. Tim has been a member of SEAC since his early graduate school days (2005) and now enjoys working in SEAC as a member of the Board of Directors, Activities Committee Chair, and most recently Website Developer. Tim really enjoys keeping as current as he can with his academic roots, while eagerly developing new products and software to enable them to continue on their novel paths of future electrochemical discoveries.
