Brad is an professor of computational cognitive science and neuroscience at UC San Diego, and the Data Evangelist for Uber. He makes use of big data, mapping, and simulations to figure out cognition.

He’s created several research tools, most notably the neuroscience literature meta-analytic resource brainSCANr.com with his wife, Jessica Bolger Voytek.
