Keith Sheppard

Scientific Software Engineer III

Software Development, Machine Learning, Visualization and Image Processing. My goal is to leverage these technical interests to develop software tools that help advance behavioral and genomics research.

My role within the Kumar Lab is to develop software tools that enable and accelerate research into addiction and other behavioral disorders. This often involves developing deep neural networks or employing other computational methods to extract and analyze behavioral metrics of mice observed under many different experimental conditions. I enjoy being challenged to find or develop computational methods that allow our researchers to extract and analize the data that they need to answer important biological questions.
