Here at mathnathan.com I record my experiences learning about math and science and their applications in the world. My primary interest right now is deep learning. I try to write in a manner suitable for all audiences, if you have any questions though please feel free to contact me.
NAME / AGE: Nathan Crock, 28 years old
STORY: I want to further the positive impact that technology has on the world, and eventually provide technology to bring mankind to space. A bad habit of mine is trying to discuss everything through math and science, so here I can rant and satisfy my intellectual curiosities without talking those close to me into a coma. However, my diverse interests and passion for learning also foster a desire to be a sort of modern day renaissance man. So enjoy everything else I post as well!
CURRENTLY: I am a graduate student at Florida State University in the department of Scientific Computing. I work in the Visualization Lab and at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience. My research is in unsupervised learning and representation learning. I am developing algorithms to extract features that govern intracellular astrocytic communication.
FUTURE: I will be receiving my PhD in the next year or two. From there I plan to continue my work in artificial intelligence.
RESEARCH: You can learn more about my professional and academic career through my LinkedIn Profile.
