Miscellaneous Academic Activities
I do a lot of things outside of the standard graduate workload to try and both advance my own skillset and help grow the neuroscience community at large. For example, I run the /r/neuroscience and /r/compmathneuro communities on reddit, and have organized AMAs as part of my efforts there -- Christof Koch, Joergen Kornfeld, and Numenta are some of the folks we've interviewed as part of that initiative.
I've also attended a number of workshops and summer schools dedicated to computational neuroscience and machine learning, including the IBRO-SIMONS Computational Neuroscience Imbizo in South Africa and the Neuromatch Academy. Pictures below.
