Dr Timothy Nicholson's current research interests include: rheological studies of polymers foods and other fluids; the application of new 'molecularly aware' constitutive equations to complex flows and extrusion in polymers using finite element methods; molecular modelling at an atomistic and meso scale.
He received his B.A. in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge in 1984 and his PhD from there in 1988. His PhD was on "Rheology and modelling of liquid Crystal polymers". Dr Nicholson also obtained a Certificate of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education from the University of Leeds, UK, in 1996 and a Graduate Diploma in Theology from Brisbane College of Theology in 2009
