Tim Poston

Biography

Tim Poston is an interdisciplinary scientist, with a 1972 Mathematics PhD from the University of Warwick, England. He has since worked in universities from Brazil to South Korea, and in companies ranging from start-ups to GE, in sciences and technologies from ophthalmology to archaeology. Much of this work has led to books and other publications (87, with 2,148 citations on ResearchGate), some to patents (currently 26 issued, several pending), from search presentation technology to glyph rendering, calibrating magnetic resonance receiver coils, the 5-dimensional geometry of real binary quartics, vibration spectra of crystals, brain surgery planning, settlement patterns in archaeology, rod buckling, vision (human and machine), and 3D medical image analysis.

For the last two decades his chief concerns have been in the acquisition and analysis of medical images, and practical human-machine interaction; in April 2013 he joined Forus Health in Bangalore, exploring novel ways to analyse images of the eye with the practical goal of fighting blindness with widely deployable, affordable equipment.

In 2003, with Rebecca, his wife of 49 years (and joyfully counting), he published Tales of Unexplained Mysteries, fantasy stories for and about Singapore teens, of different groups and times.

In 2015 he impersonated Dumbledore's smarter older brother at Bangalore Comic Con, and gave a keynote at the Fifth Elephant big data conference.

He enjoys change and simultaneity quakes.
