What do I do?
I research how brains use sensory information about the world to make decisions and choose behaviors. I am mostly interested in studying natural and social behvaiors. Currently, I use fruit fly courtship as a way to investigate these questions.
I think it is important to understand scientific problems from many angles. To understand behavior, I use concepts from neuroscience, psychology, economics, ecology, physics, computer science, and more.
I write about science, about ideas.
I make data visualizations.
I run the NeuroRumblr, a website to aggregate information about neuroscience conferences and faculty jobs.
