What I do
I designed and taught PSYC 347 - Computational Models of Human Social Behavior and Neuroscience during the spring of 2021. Information about the course materials and accompanying Jupyter Book can be found here.
I co-direct and teach an eight-week summer program for high school and college students, with a focus on providing early computational neuroscience training for underserved students. Information about the course materials and accompanying Jupyter Book can be found here.
I served as a teaching assistant for Neuromatch Academy during the summer 2020. Course content and tutorials can be found here.
As the Teaching Assistant, I designed and taught tutorials to supplement Dr. Max Riesenhuber's Computational Neuroscience graduate course at Georgetown University.
I led a workshop on compiling supplemental materials (e.g., code, visualizations) from their projects into a Jupyter Book website. The workshop materials and executable book template can be found here.
I led a workshop on the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) at the 2020 Brainhack DC. The workshop materials can be found here.
I led a workshop on using Python for Neuroimaging Research at the 2019 Brainhack DC. The workshop materials can be found here.
