Dr Tim Apps checking soil during drought in Central Victoria.

I’m Tim Apps, born and raised at Yallourn in the Latrobe Valley, Victoria, Australia. Grew up within hearing and smelling range of a coal fired power station. Fanatically interested in biology from an early age. Greatest break in life was going to Monash University to study science. Awarded a PhD at 58 years old. You can see more detail about my ‘life’s journey’ and research interests at Bio. Boring stuff: Hobbies; walking the dog, playing with websites, listening to Led Zeppelin (yeah, yeah I know its not cool  to be trapped in the 70’s!), sometimes working in the lab.
