About

I'm Richard C. (Rick) Gerkin, Ph.D., a neuroscientist and scientific software developer at Arizona State University.

My interests and goals are:

  • Neuroinformatics and promoting efficient use of neurophysiology data.
  • Creating and sharing reproducible, extensible neurophysiology models.
  • Solving the stimulus-percept problem in human olfaction.
  • Using statistical models and machine learning to improve disease prediction.

Software projects I manage:

  • SciUnit, a software infrastructure for data-driven validation of scientific models.
  • NeuronUnit, a SciUnit library for testing neurophysiology models against experimental data.
  • Recording Artist, an acquisition and analysis suite for use with Igor Pro.
