> status: Doctoral student at MIT, Synthetic Neurobiology
> location: Boston, MA <-> Grafton, NH
> bio: I work on methods to record and simulate the complete neural circuitry of organisms, mainly c.elegans for now. I am advised by Ed Boyden and Max Tegmark. My goal is to perfect the interface between humans and computers.
Previously, I was at the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms, working on protein docking dynamics, rapid fabrication techniques, and spatial computing architectures. During this, I ran a novel prosthetics startup. Before that, I was a member of the Conrad Research Group, at MIT's Laboratory for Nuclear Science, working on neutron activation simulation and neutrino-electron scattering models. Before that, I was in the Intermediate Energy Physics Group at UCLA, working on meson mass range analysis.
Before that, I didn't exist. In my spare time, I enjoy working on my off-grid mountaintop farm. I also sequence and sing over old synthesizers.
