Tim applies his formal training in electromagnetics and plasma physics to innovations in signal processing, computer vision, and machine learning. Before Atlas5D, he spent six years as a consultant at Exponent, where his areas of expertise included ground-penetrating radar, power transmission, electromagnetic compatibility, root-cause failure analysis and IP litigation. Tim received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. While at Stanford, he was one of 24 Americans to receive the Young Scientist Award from the International Union of Radio Science in 2008. His doctoral thesis examined antenna-plasma interactions aboard near-Earth spacecraft and he is the author of numerous peer-reviewed publications and holds multiple patents.
