Stuck on a project? I'm here to help.

For the past five years I've been helping both laboratories and individual researchers learn the tools they need to get the job done. This includes:

  1.  Teaching concepts about neuroimaging, statistics, and scientific writing;
  2.  Workshops for using different software packages (e.g., AFNI, FSL, SPM, and FreeSurfer);
  3.  Assisting scientists with making professional images to most effectively communicate their results; and
  4.  Helping graduate students with writing and submitting their first publication, from cover letter to addressing reviewer comments.

I have worked with students and researchers across the United States and around the world, including University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, NYU, Harvard Medical School, Indiana University, University of Antwerp, and UC Irvine. Although the labs work on different topics, they have all wanted neuroimaging concepts and techniques explained clearly and concisely. By working with me, you will get the assistance you need to move your project forward.

To get started, contact me below. We will set up a free introductory Skype session to discuss your project, what you need assistance with, and consulting rates.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!


Skype Availability: I am available anytime outside of 9am-5pm EST, Monday through Friday. For researchers in Europe, I prefer to meet on weekends between 8am and 12pm EST (which, depending on your time zone, is usually between 2-6pm your time). Also, due to a recent increase in the number of clients, the waiting time can be 2-4 weeks before our first session. Send me a message and we will work out a schedule.

I just wanted to let you know that you have been a tremendous help for me getting to know SPM and FSL. I am about to finish my MA thesis at the University of Maastricht and all this would not have been possible without your videos. Keep up the great work!

I am just writing to say thank you so much for your fMRI related posts and videos. They have been extremely useful in helping me understand the ‘why’s’ and ‘how’s’ of several aspects of fMRI analysis; also got me through several difficult patches of patient based fMRI analysis as part of my PhD work. I am very grateful. More power to you :)

Before starting this job last year, my experience was purely cognitive. The transition into cognitive neuroscience, namely learning all things fMRI, TMS, tDCS, etc., has been exciting and challenging to say the least. Indeed, your blog has become a well used resource. As I have faced the many challenges that come with learning fMRI, R, matlab, DTI and so on, your blog has continued to be a uniquely straightforward and understandable source of knowledge.

I started working with Andy about one and a half years ago. At the time, I only knew how to do basic resting state analyses. However, under Andy’s mentorship, I learned multiple neuro-analytic techniques, including measurement of brain morphometry, diffusion imaging, and complex task-based functional analyses. Concomitantly, I gained experience working with multiple neuroimaging packages such as AFNI, FSL, TORTOISE, and TRACULA.

I am immensely grateful for his enormous contributions to my own growth as a neuroscientist, and for his constant encouragement and support at every step of the way. I am certain that without Andy’s help, I would not have achieved these milestones with such ease and confidence. Thank you very, very much, Andy.
