I am a neuroscience PhD student and I study how central nervous system myelin is influenced by (and influences) neuronal activity. I am also interested in programming languages (mostly Clojure and Python) and using those languages to build tools.

I learn new things using projects and this website is how I keep track of my projects and how I did things.

email me if you want to get in touch. You can also find me on the image.sc forum nick_george, github nkicg6, and twitter @NicholasMG.

This website is one of my projects! I re-wrote it using Clojure (the original was Python-flask). I learned a lot and I am a firm believer in the Clojure/lisp philosophy. I wrote about that experience here and about why I am learning Clojure here.
The website source code is also available.
