Federico Bolaños

I am a first year MSc student in the Neuroscience program at UBC under the supervision of Timothy Murphy. I am currently working on a project that involves optogenetics and the Raspberry Pi single board computer.

Before grad school, I completed a Bachelor of Science at UBC and graduated in May 2016. My major was Integrated Sciences, and the disciplines I integrated were Neuroscience and Computer Science.

My interests revolve around chronic brain imaging, optogenetics, SBCs, python, machine learning and image analysis. I like automating experiments as much as possible to reduce variability in the data, for example using the Raspberry Pi to conduct long term experiments. I also enjoy tinkering with electronics and playing piano. Take a look at my blog and projects to find out more.
