Code, Coffee, & Cortex
I'm Jordan, a computational neuroscientist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory .

My research interests are in connectomics and machine learning — using brains to make computers better; and in computational medicine — using computers to make people better.

One-Hour Projects

When I'm feeling unproductive, I sit down at the computer and set a timer for 60 minutes. At the end of that hour, I publish whatever code I've written, even if it remains unrefined or incomplete. This helps me improve my coding-speed, and it also forces me to write modular, readable code. It also keeps me off the streets.

I sometimes write about math, neuroscience, and cocktails here.
