About I am currently astrophysicist and developer for Universe Sandbox 2. I am looking for a career direction that will be stimulating and utilize my unique experience with distributed and large scale computing, modeling and simulation, physics and electronics to do something interesting and socially relevant. I am very interested in computational neuroscience, and am currently considering a switch. I am specifically interested in Brain Machine Interfaces, computer vision, network science, evolutionary systems, and neuromorphic systems. As hobbies I am active in science outreach, electronics hacking, fire spinning (poi, staff, and rope dart), rock climbing, and I am active in the Burning man regional communities (mostly with regard to public art and charity fund raising events). I enjoy the outdoors and like to hike on weekends. I love the game of go and love a challenging puzzle.
