with a keen interest in theory & programming.
I’m a research fellow at CMU, in the CoAxLab.
Before that I spent a year at Kernel.co where I did awesome (...secret) things.
In my postdoc with Brad Voytek, I used machine learning, computer simulations, and applied mathematics to see how the biological origin of neural oscillations may help to define their role in human cognition.
During my PhD with Carol Seger I did a good amount of fMRI experimental design and analysis, machine learning of high dimensional data, and used reinforcement learning to study human behavior.
Farther back I've worked in nanotech, chemistry, biophysics, and biochemistry, including a couple years in the Bay Area Biotech industry.
Take a look at my github page or the labs. All recent simulation and analysis code is there, or will be shortly. #openscience. I'm fluent in python, R, matlab, julia, have a working knowledge of perl, haskell, lisp, C, & C++.
I love giving talks about data science, and neuroscience.
For fun I read books, poems, ride, climb and am (it seems) the kind of person who runs distances for fun.
