My research concentrates on the study of exploding stars using telescopes around the world and in space, working across the spectrum from radio waves to X-rays.

I teach undergraduate and postgraduate students and also carry out a wide range of public engagement activities including being the primary media contact for Jodrell Bank. This includes work with the media, schools and events at Jodrell Bank.

Tim isĀ Associate Dean for External Relations in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences; also Associate Director of Jodrell Bank Observatory.
