Neil received his Bachelor of Veterinary Science from the University of Sydney with honours and the university medal in 2008. Following veterinary school, he undertook an internship at the Veterinary Specialist Centre in North Ryde. He then completed a Medical Oncology residency at the Veterinary Specialist Centre and SASH. During this residency he became extremely interested in Radiation Oncology. This pursuit led him to a Radiation Oncology residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In 2014 he became board certified by the American College of Radiology in Radiation Oncology and accepted a faculty position at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In 2016 Neil became a Fellow of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists in Medical Oncology making him a specialist in both radiation and medical oncology. Most recently Neil was an Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Outside of work Neil spends his time with his wonderful wife (Dr. Kath Tsimbas – also a Medical Oncologist at SASH) his two geriatric cats and adorable dog, Chelsea. They are all enjoying settling back into Sydney!
