seeking to understand the minds of man and machine


I am a Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience PhD Student at Florida Atlantic University. I am affiliated with the Machine Perception and Cognitive Robotics Laboratory and the Center for Future Mind. I build bio-inspired nonlinear models of artificial intelligence. I am working with NDEWS to use machine-learning methods to predict nationwide substance abuse patterns. In my spare time, I educate people about AI, think about cybernetics as a mechanism to help knowledge workers, and explore natural philosophy. All opinions are my own.
