Michael Linderman, M.Sc.Eng., B.Sc.
President and Chief Scientist at Norconnect Inc.
Location: Ogdensburg, New York, United States
Michael Linderman focuses his interests in computational approaches to movement disorders analysis. He started his career working at the Laboratory of Mathematical Methods in Neurophysiology, Moscow, USSR. In this laboratory he was introduced to the pioneering ideas of Nicolai Bernstein in the area of man’s voluntary movement. Bernstein demonstrated how the problems of general physiology can be explored in terms of the structural analysis of movements.
Later on, Linderman worked at IBM and Nortel Networks. He became a recognized expert in object-oriented computer technology, and his book on visual programming applications was published by Cambridge University Press. Linderman also made notable contributions to software communications architecture. His technology is used by most middleware applications in the cloud computing environment and on the Internet.
At Norconnect he conducted his pioneering research in electrophysiology of handwriting. This led to several notable scientific discoveries that can be applied to deeper understanding of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease.
