Research interests

Tim’s current research interests are focused in three core areas:
  • Hydro-economic modelling of the feedbacks between agricultural production decisions and aquifer sustainability, and the effectiveness of alternative groundwater management policies.
  • Development and application of crop simulation models to understand the effects of water scarcity, climate variability and change, and field management practices on crop yields and resource use efficiency.
  • Exploring the value of remote sensing and smart data technologies for monitoring and improvement of agricultural water use efficiency at field to catchment scales.
