Short Biography

I am a computational neuroscientist interested in how the brain develops during early life. I primarily use computers to (1) simulate development of the nervous system and (2) analyse experimental data collected by colleagues around the world. My web page http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/user/sje30/ lists my interests and research papers to date.

My primary focus is on understanding the mechanisms by which neurons connect themselves into functioning networks. A theme common to most of the projects I work on is in the automated, quantitative analysis of large volumes of data.

I also have research interests more generally in Computational Biology and Network Science. Through teaching computational biology students to program, I have also gradually become more interested in introducing scientific computing into the life sciences.
