Tim works on understanding the dynamics of microbial adaptation. These dynamics determine the ability of microbes to adapt and compete in both benign and stressful environments, like those presented by the use of antibiotics. His work focusses on the genetics of adaptation, especially on how interactions among genetic mutations and the environment influence evolutionary outcomes.
