Professor Tim Watson - Biography Excerpt
My name is Tim Watson and I am currently employed on a fractional basis, as Professor of Physiotherapy at the University of Hertfordshire. I have been employed at the University since 1998 and have held my (full) Professorial position since 2003. In addition to my academic research position, I work as a consultant in electrotherapy/electrophysical agents, working for various professional bodies, legal and insurance companies, manufacturers and retail groups undertaking work on a contract basis.
I provide evidence based education programmes in the UK, Europe and Worldwide (over 860 events to date). I have edited a mainstream textbook on electrotherapy (Watson, T. (2008). Electrotherapy: Evidence Based Practice. Elsevier), contributed to several other textbooks and have published over 65 scientific papers on various aspects of electrotherapy.
I am currently President of ISEAPT (a formal subgroup of WCPT; the international body representing Physiotherapists/Physical Therapists worldwide). I also hold the position of Research Officer for the UK Electrophysical Agents group (EPADU).
As part of my research, I have actively researched and published in the field of Microcurrent Therapy and its applications. The views expressed in these documents are my own and reflect an independent stance based on the available evidence, rather than from a commercially oriented perspective.
