I am a Senior Research Scientist at the Lifespan, Informatics, & Neuroimaging Center, University of Pennsylvania.
My job is primarily organizing, processing, and analyzing large neuroimaging and behavioral datasets using traditional statistics and machine learning. In particular, I maintain the functional brain connectivity preprocessing container, XCP-D, and an analysis toolkit, pennlinckit. I help post-doc and graduate students in the pennlinc lab publish papers, as well as my own projects, mostly on brain development. Our projects can be found here.
