Jean-Luc works as a software engineer for Anaconda, Inc. and is a final-year PhD in computational neuroscience at the University of Edinburgh working on large-scale models of the primary visual cortex. His scientific code is exclusively written in Python and is openly accessible together with his research publications under a BSD license on GitHub. Much of his work has been aimed at making reproducible and open research a practical reality in Python, with particular emphasis on effective use of the IPython Notebook environment.
