Tim’s research has concentrated on the study of crystalline rocks from a variety of geodynamic settings and what these can tell us about fundamental processes on Earth and beyond. His expertise lie in metamorphic petrology, in particular the application of phase equilibria modelling using internally consistent thermodynamic data.

Tim has specific interests in the generation, segregation and migration of melt, the fundamental processes driving differentiation of the lithosphere on Earth and which, on planetesimals, have produced the significant compositional diversity found in meteorites.
