Originally from South Africa, Timothy was the first in his family to go to college or graduate school. Timothy’s research interests at NYU were in political behavior, comparative politics, and the intersection of social identity and electoral politics. His research focused on comparing partisanship and political cohesion of lesbian, gay, and bisexual voters in the United Kingdom and the United States.
Prior to joining New York University, Timothy attained his Bachelors of Arts with Honors in Politics at the University of Cape Town. He also attended Bard College through its program in international education scholarship.
Timothy now works as an analyst in digital marketing. His plan for the future is to continue to grow his technical skill set in the industry such as learning R and Python.
