Chris Holdgraf

Alumni - BIDS Postdoctoral Researcher

Chris Holdgraf was formerly a BIDS Data Science Fellow and Community Architect for UC Berkeley's Data Science Education Program. His background is in cognitive and computational neuroscience, where he used predictive models to understand the auditory system in the human brain. He's interested in the boundary between technology, open-source software, and scientific workflows, as well as creating new pathways for this kind of work in science and the academy. He's a core member of Project Jupyter, specifically working with JupyterHub and Binder, two open-source projects that make it easier for researchers and educators to do their work in the cloud. He works on these core tools, along with research and educational projects that use these tools at Berkeley and in the broader open science community.
