Jason Wittenbach

Neuroscientist, HHMI - Janelia Research Campus

I am a computational neuroscientist in the research group of Jerermy Freeman at the Janelia Research Campus. Broadly, my work focuses on understanding the neural circuits that the brain uses to implement the myriad computations that it needs to perform in everyday life. One major component of this is analyzing the large data sets of neural activity coming from cutting-edge neuroscience experiments. Through this avenue, I am also interested in creating quality open-source software tools that the scientific community can use to gain insights from such data sets.

Bolt: Building A Distributed ndarray

The n-dimensional array (ndarray) is a ubiquitous data structure in scientific computing, whether analyzing time-varying movies of neural activity, collections of satellite images, or sensor time series. The ndarray generalizes the two-dimensional matrix to support… Read more
