Welcome to the inaugural post of this blog. I am writer and scientist Tim Andersen. You may have found me through my medium.com publication The Infinite Universe. If you haven’t read my articles there, go ahead and check it out. This blog is for less formal writing, personal observations, and anecdotes. It is also where you can find links to my books such as The Infinite Universe.
A little bit about me: professionally I work for Georgia Tech. I am a research faculty (meaning I don’t teach normally). I have the rank of Principal Research Scientist which is more or less equivalent to being a full professor on the academic side. My background is in physics and mathematics but my day to day research job is in sensors (primarily radar), which is a physics and mathematics rich subject.
This isn’t my first blog but my past ones were more like personal journals. This one is intended for you, the reader, to explore topics in physics, mathematics, religion, politics, psychology, and whatever strikes your fancy.
A note on contacting me: I prefer email. You can also tweet at me if you have something short to say. I generally don’t respond to comments on posts or articles, though I often read them, because the format isn’t a good place to have a conversation. Please don’t be offended if I don’t respond.
