I'm a PhD student at UC Berkeley exploring the intersection of computer science and neuroscience (here's my CV). My research interests are in learning algorithms/statistical techniques for (1) neural decoding, (2) mapping the brain, and (3) computational models of learning. I'm also developing a set of notes on AI/neuroscience.
