The brain is a tremendously complex system and in order to understand it we are going to need large amounts of data from many different kinds of measurements. Me and my colleagues use data science methods to integrate the information provided by these measurements into a coherent picture. In particular, we develop statistical analysis techniques to decipher the role of networks of brain areas in complex behaviors and in brain disorders, and I implement these techniques in robust, efficient, and openly-available computer software.
