Hello! I’m a neuroscience PhD candidate at the University of California, Berkeley, where I research large-scale information flow in the brain. That involves writing and testing computer code that takes recordings of brain activity, and spits out measurements I’m hoping will tell us something about how the brain processes information – both when it’s awake, and when it’s unconscious. Before coming to UC Berkeley, I studied philosophy and neuroscience at Princeton University, where I researched time perception.
Because I think that science belongs to everyone, I make all my papers and code freely available online. That’s also why I’m here, blogging, Tweeting, Instagramming, and working with folks in Hollywood to share my love for science and the brain.
