An Introduction

I'm a research scientist at Janelia on the FlyEM team. We use cutting-edge electron microscopy to generate terabytes of brain images that are analyzed using deep learning (with Google Research) and tools we've built for our large team of proofreaders. The result is a map of the fruit fly's neural circuitry. I currently specialize in data engineering, figuring out how we manage and easily serve the massive volume of data.

Aside from my scientific work, I dabble with web development and sci-fi/fantasy writing.
