I am a computational neuroscience graduate student at UC San Diego.
I am a member of the Gentner lab. My thesis research attempts to use ideas from algebraic topology to understand auditory perception in the brains of songbirds - namely, the European starling.
I received a B.S. in biomedical engineering and mathematics from the University of Cincinnati in 2014.
I'm originally from Milford, Ohio, which is outside of Cincinnati. I graduated from Milford High School in 2009.
What is the expression for the fully relativistic, conserved spacetime matter current of a fluid or continuous body? Let’s figure it out.
I spent a little time this morning going over time-dependent perturbation theory in ordinary quantum mechanics. Here I wanted to work it out.
As I’m writing this, I’m in hour 35 of the experiment I started yesterday. It is going very well so far - excellent signals, no catastrophes. Some of the auditory responses are so strong, they remind me why I’m even here in the first place.
Today I’m jumping back and forth between working on my website and doing a recording from a starling’s brain. The kinds of experiments we do have lots of downtime during certain parts while you wait for some step to complete.
