Software developer/scientist currently working in New York. I have a bachelors degree in Physics and Computer Science and I earned my masters in computational neuroscience at McGill University in Montreal. My research interests mainly focus on economics and image processing.
I have an unusual love for hiking, which lead me to hike the entire Appalachian Trail in 2015.
A Compartmental Model of Linear Resonance and Signal Transfer in Denderites
This paper covers my masters thesis research. I studied how neurons work as computational units. Experimental reserach in the last two decades has shown that single neurons are capable of many more complicated calculations than the simple sum-threshold model that forms the basis for artificial neural nets. My thesis work attempted to reduce some of this reserach into a simple model and make predictions about what this meant for the structure of neural computation.
Tracking Toads Using Photo Identification and Image Recogntion Software
I worked with David Green’s lab at McGill University to build a system that used image processing to ‘fingerprint’ Fowler’s Toads. Our approach was a humane alternative to toe-clipping.
