Hey, I'm David Nicholson. I am a neuroscientist (grad student) at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. I work in Sam Sober's lab in the Biology department. We study songbirds as a model system to understand how the brain learns and produces vocalizations. My thesis project focuses on figuring out what parts of the brain connect with each other, using standard techniques and newer viral methods. I also use machine learning to automate processes in the lab. For that I write code in Python, Matlab, occasionally Javascript/Java/C++.
