Courses

As part of my continuous professional development, I have completed the following online courses, offered by various accredited universities.

Introduction to Programming with MATLAB

Vanderbilt University. Completed in Sep 2016.

This is an introductory programming course that uses MATLAB to illustrate general concepts in computer science and programming. This course teaches general concepts in computer science, offers an understanding of the general concepts of programming, and provides a solid foundation in the use of MATLAB.

The Brain and Space

Duke University. Completed in Nov 2015.

This course concerns our spatial abilities, and covers vision, hearing, body position sensing, movement, and balance. It closes with topics involving representations, reference frames, navigation, memory, and cognition.

Introduction to Neuroeconomics: how the brain makes decisions

National Research University, Higher School of Economics. Completed in Sep 2014.

The neuroeconomics is a unified discipline, combining economics, psychology, and neuroscience. It provides economists and social scientists with a deeper understanding of how they make their own decisions, and how others decide.

Statistical Analysis of fMRI Data

Johns Hopkins University, Bloomberg School of Public Health. Completed in Sep 2014.

This course explores the intersection of statistics and functional magnetic resonance imaging, covering analysis of fMRI data, acquisition, and use in locating brain activity and making inferences about connectivity and predictions about psychological or disease states.

Genes and the Human Condition (From Behavior to Biotechnology)

University of Maryland. Completed in Aug 2014.

This course provides an understanding of the fundamental concepts of genomics and biotechnology, and their implications for human biology, evolution, medicine, social policy and individual life path choices in the 21st century.

The Addicted Brain

Emory University. Completed in Aug 2014.

The course covers many aspects of addiction, mainly to drugs, but also to the Internet, gambling and other behaviours.

Bioinformatics: Life Sciences on Your Computer

Johns Hopkins University, Centre for Biotechnology Education. Completed in July 2014.

This introductory five-week course on bioinformatics covered sequence databases, PubMed, BLAST searching, protein bioinformatics, secondary structure prediction, bacterial gene prediction, viral gene structure, eukaryotic gene prediction and DNA fingerprinting.
