BS Engineering and Computer Science, Swarthmore (1999-2003) PhD Neuroscience, George Mason University (2006-2015)
Neuroscience Research Assistant with extensive experience in software development, data management, statistics, data visualization, and bioinformatics. Current research involves bioinformatic pattern searching applied to neuronal morphology. Future aim is to study neuronal networks and their specific information processing roles and capabilities. Interests also include science policy and educational outreach.
Todd studied Engineering and Computer Science at Swarthmore College, graduating in 2003, after which he moved to Virginia to work in IT (specifically knowledge managements systems) with Vivakos Inc until 2006. He then entered the Neuroscience PhD Program at George Mason University with a 2-year fellowship from Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study. After the fellowship was over Todd became a Graduate Research Assistant under Dr. Giorgio Ascoli at Krasnow’s Center for Neural Informatics, Neural Structures, and Neural Plasticity (CN3) of Giorgio Ascoli where he has worked on several projects and is now working on completing his dissertation. He spent a semester working with Dr. Ted Dumas and helping publish a paper on gene therapy in addressing stress.
My work centered on neuronal morphology, with a focus in data mining and pattern analysis ...
