I'm a graduate researcher at UC Berkeley, and a fellow with the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS).
In my neuroscience work, I study the way that the auditory cortex of the brain understands sounds. To do this, I build predictive models of brain activity. I use these models to understand what aspects of sound the brain "cares" about, and to understand how higher-levels of the brain can influence this process. At BIDS, I'm working on a number of projects to improve the way that scientists analyze, communicate, and share their data.
Note: This blog is a place for me to write down my thoughts about data analysis, neuroscience, research, etc. A lot of these will be uncooked ideas that are still evolving and changing, maybe in significant ways. I invite you to read, comment, question, and critique, but don't take anything written here as the final word on anything. -Chris
