During my first year and half I designed and performed electrophysiological recording experiments in freely behaving mice. During that time, and since, I have been analysing the data from those experiments, as well as supervising the collection of more data and analysing data for other projects in the lab.</p> <p><strong>FHS Project in Neuroscience (Hotchkiss Brain Institute, Calgary, Canada)</strong> - During my undergraduate I was awarded a scholarship to perform a research project in Canada. I investigated the role of the CRH (Corticotropin Release Hormone)-positive neurons in the hypothalamus using immunohistochemistry, optogenetics and behavioural testing.</p> <h4 id="open-science--computing">Open Science &amp; Computing</h4> <p><strong>RSE Cloud Computing Fellow 2017-2018</strong> - I have been awarded a fellowship to develop solutions to make it easier for researchers to make use of cloud computing resources. My main project here will be allowing users to perform spike-sorting in the cloud using <a href="">MountainLab-JS</a>. So far we have added an API so that we can add, remove and interface with pods from a Kubernetes cluster.</p> <p><strong>SSI Software Sustainability Fellow 2017-2019</strong> - I was awarded a fellowship by the Software Sustainability Institute to continue working on 3 projects: developing the OS and research software module for an <a href="">Open Science MOOC</a>, continue building a community around using Julia for Neuroscience research (<a href="">Julia Neuro</a>) and to continue to lead the formation of a Robust Research Initiative in Oxford.</p> <p><strong>MRC BNDU Information Security and Data Access Committee 2017-Present</strong> - I am steering the creation of a Peta-Scale Data Sharing Platform that we are building so that we are able to more effectively share our raw data. I also co-manage the NAS &amp; local compute servers as well as 20+ linux workstations.</p> <p><strong>Julia Contributor 2017-Present</strong> - I contribute bug fixes / features to several Julia packages, as well as the main language itself. I have also authored a few packages myself. These can all be found on <a href="">my github</a>.</p> <p><strong>Stack Overflow Contributor 2017-Present</strong> - I try to give back a bit for all the help I have got on SO.</p> <p>**</p> <p>**</p> <h4 id="presentations">Presentations</h4> <p><strong><em>Poster:</em></strong> <strong>Disentangling neural representations of appetitive and aversive experiences.</strong> - FENS Forum of Neuroscience 2018 (Planned)</p> <p><strong><em>Talk:</em></strong> <strong>What can Julia do for Neuroscience?</strong> - Julia Con 2018 (Planned)</p> <p><strong><em>Lightning Talk:</em></strong> <strong>Continuous Research</strong> - Collaborations Workshop 2018</p> <p><strong><em>Talk:</em></strong> <strong>5 Golden Rules for Data and Code Management</strong> <a href="">link</a> - MRC BNDU Training Day 2018</p> <p><strong><em>Poster:</em></strong> <strong>Disentangling appetitive and aversive memories with overlapping content spanning multiple brain circuits</strong> - Society for Neuroscience 2017</p> <p><strong><em>Poster:</em></strong> <strong>Detecting neuronal assemblies using patterns of cross-correlations</strong> - British Neuroscience Association 2017</p> <p><strong><em>Poster:</em></strong> <strong>Population Coupling in Memory and Reward Processing Circuits</strong> - FENS 2016</p> <h3 id="skills">Skills</h3> <h4 id="programming-languagestechnologies">Programming Languages/Technologies</h4> <p><strong>Confident with &amp; use on a day-to-day basis</strong></p> <ul> <li><a href="">Julia</a>, Python</li> <li>Bash, Shell Scripting, Awk, Vim, Make</li> <li>Version Control (git and <a href="">Github</a>)</li> <li>Front-end (JS, HTML &amp; CSS), Back-end (NodeJS)</li> <li>Docker, Azure</li> </ul> <p><strong>Working knowledge of (e.g. often used for collaborative projects):</strong></p> <ul> <li>R, MATLAB</li> <li>C, C++</li> <li>Continuous Integration (Travis CI), Kubernetes, AWS</li> </ul> <h4 id="teaching">Teaching</h4> <p><strong>Programming/Analysis</strong></p> <ul> <li>Day-to-day supervision of an analytical Final Honours School Project</li> <li>Software Carpentry Instructor</li> <li>System Administration and programming instruction within the department</li> </ul> <p><strong>School/College Level</strong></p> <ul> <li>BMAT/UKCAT/TSA Skills teaching (&gt; 100 hours)</li> <li>A-level Biology, Chemistry and Maths (&gt; 100 hours)</li> <li>GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths (1 on 1 &gt;100 hours, small groups &gt;50 hours)</li> <li>11+ and 13+ - (&gt; 200 hours)</li> </ul> </div> <section class="container"> <br> <div class="column" style="float:right"> <div><br></div> <div class="footer-icons" style="text-align:right"> <a href="//" title="Fork me on GitHub!" style="text-decoration:none"><i class="fa fa-github"></i></a> <a href="//" title="Follow me on Twitter!" style="text-decoration:none"><i class="fa fa-twitter"></i></a> <a href="//" title="Like "" on Facebook!" style="text-decoration:none"><i class="fa fa-facebook"></i></a> <a href="//" title=""" RSS feed!" style="text-decoration:none"><i class="fa fa-rss"></i></a> </ul> </div> <a href="/licence"><div class="footer-title"><span class="footer-year"> 2018</span></div></a> </div> <div class="column" style="float:left"> <div class="footer_links"> <a href="">view</a> ∙ <a href="">edit</a> ∙ <a href="">history</a> </div> <div class="cc-by"> <a href="/licence">CC BY 4.0</a> </div> <div class="clearfix"> </div> <a href="/attributions"><div class="footer-title">attributions</div></a> </div> </section> </main> </body> </html>
