Tim is currently researching parasite-host-microbiota interactions in the lab of Dr Cinzia Cantacessi in the Department of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Cambridge. As part of the BBSRC DTP Programme Tim completed rotation projects in Veterinary Medicine and in the Department of Genetics with Professor Anne Ferguson-Smith. Tim completed his three month internship at Instituto Clodomiro Picado in Costa Rica where he evaluated the analytical performance of antivenomics.
