I am Research Scientist at Google in Mountain View, California, where I am working towards the automated reconstruction of neural circuit connectivity from large-scale, nanometer resolution images of brain tissue. See my research page for more information about my scientific interests.

From 2011-2013 I was a Laboratory Head at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Janelia Research Campus.

In 2004, I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Pennsylvania with degrees in Computer Science and Cognitive Science, followed by a PhD in Computation at MIT (2009).

At MIT, I worked with Sebastian Seung and collaborators at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research to develop new algorithms for automated image analysis, with the goal of enabling high-throughput reconstruction of brain connnectivity.
