About

I’m a neuroscientist working to figure out how the brain wires itself together. A better understanding of functional brain development is crucial for the prevention or treatment of many, if not all, neurological diseases, as well as realizing self-organization in the robotic systems of the future.

My research involves generating, exploring, and visualizing a considerable amount of data regarding the functional dynamics among synaptic connections in the nervous system. To help accomplish this, data wrangling is necessary– writing R, matlab, python, and unix shell code to manage, assemble, and analyze measurements made in our experiments.
