Hi there, I'm Yaroslav O. Halchenko (AKA Yarik) 👋

I'm a Research Associate Professor at the Department of the Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College, where I am leading the Center for Open Neuroscience. I would invite you to visit our Projects page to discover neuroinformatics projects we are leading or involved with.

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

📫 How to reach me: email me (one of the emails in all of my commits on github). I am also yarikoptic on Twitter and gmail.

😄 Pronouns: he/him

Note: my personal does not have that many interesting repositories. The vast majority are forks of repositories from project organizations.
