Timir received his PhD from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Hyderabad in India. During PhD, he worked on fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) and other fluorescence-based methods to characterize protein aggregation. He continued his research at TIFR Hyderabad, India as a postdoctoral fellow to investigate protein-protein interactions using single-particle Förster resonance energy transfer (spFRET) and two colour coincident detection (TCCD) methods.

Currently, Timir is a postdoctoral fellow (Kempestiftelserna) at the department of physics in Umeå university. He has joined the biophysics and biophotonics research group (with Professor Magnus Andersson) to investigate biophysical and biochemical properties of bacterial spores using optical tweezers, Raman spectroscopy and fluorescence imaging.
