Hi there, I'm Taylor 👋

I'm a Psychology grad student at Florida International University working with Dr. Angela Laird (@angielaird). I'm primarily interested in neuroinformatics (tool-building for cognitive neuroscience), reproducible neuroimaging research, and semi-advanced fMRI denoising.

I am the project maintainer for NiMARE (a Python package for neuroimaging meta-analyses), a core contributor to tedana (a library for denoising multi-echo fMRI data), and a member of the maintainers team for the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS). I also contribute to a number of neuroimaging-related Python tools, like fMRIPrep, the physiopy suite, and heudiconv.

I try to answer questions on NeuroStars when I have the time, as well.

🔭 I'm currently working on improving NiMARE, converting BIDS to a machine-parseable schema, and building a workflow to process complex-valued, multi-echo fMRI data with synchronous physiological data.

🌱 I'm currently learning about complex-valued fMRI and systemic low-frequency oscillations (sLFOs) in fMRI.

👯 I’m looking to collaborate on advanced denoising tools for fMRI data leveraging multi-echo fMRI, complex-valued fMRI, or simultaneous physio acquisitions. If you're working on this kind of thing, let me know!

💬 Ask me about using NiMARE, tedana, or BIDS.

📫 How to reach me: Message me on the BrainHack Mattermost or email me.
