Research and Analysis Fellow
Tim is a Research and Analysis Fellow who provides ReThink collaboratives with public opinion poll tracking, media coverage analysis, and web content generation.
Tim comes to ReThink from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where he was a teaching assistant in physical and human geography. Before that, he was a governance intern at the Center for International Forestry Research in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. Tim holds two M.A. degrees, one in geography from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and one in indigenous peoples law and policy from the James E. Rogers College of Law. He also holds a BA in Near Eastern Studies with a minor in Arabic from the University of Arizona. He researched and co-authored the Land Use Policy publication, “Striving for PAR Excellence in Land Use Planning: Multi-stakeholder Collaboration on Customary Forest Recognition in Bulukumba, South Sulawesi.”
In another life, he was co-owner of a collective café in Tucson, Arizona, where he scrounged what money he could to travel the world. When he’s not geeking out over Russian rap or obsessively reading what remains of Gawker Media subsidiaries, he’s trying to work up the courage to surf Ocean Beach's sharky waters on the western edge of San Francisco.
