I'm Jordan, a computational neuroscientist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. My research interests are in neuroscience connectomics — using brains to make computers better — and computational medicine — using computers to make people better.
My résumé is available here (also available as a PDF).
I can be reached by email, or you can find me on Twitter and LinkedIn. My open-source software can be viewed on GitHub.
Current Projects


I'm an alumnus of the neurodata lab, Joshua Vogelstein's group at Johns Hopkins that develops open-source big-data neuroscience research. If you ran into me at SfN and are trying to pinpoint how you know me, this is probably it.


FitMango is a health technology company helping people create and discover fitness communities to achieve their health-related goals. Our web platform allows each user to find an appropriate gym, get matched with a small group of 3-5 peers led by a professional personal trainer, and track their fitness progress. We're hiring software engineers, so feel free to email me for more information!

mHealth kiosks for low-cost healthcare access

As of February 2015, I am a member of a Johns Hopkins University Center for Bioengineering Innovation & Design Biomedical Engineering Design Team that aims to bring remote-healthcare mobile kiosks to low-access regions of developing countries.


HopHacks is a 36-hour, student-run hackathon at the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus. Please reach out if you or your company might like to hear more or get involved!

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.
