Jordan Harrod

Hi! I'm Jordan.

I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in Medical Engineering and Medical Physics at the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology program. My research focuses on using neuromodulation to understand pain and consciousness, and using neurotechnology and machine learning to develop new tools for brain stimulation.

Outside of the lab, I’m a AI-focused science communicator on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok, and more! I am also the Co-Founder of the MIT Science Policy Review, a peer-reviewed science policy journal, and was previously Chair of the External Affairs Board of the MIT Graduate Student Council, which advocates for local, state, and federal policies that support graduate students.

Over on my fortnightly newsletter Morning Notes, you'll find discussions on algorithmic fairness, emerging technologies, and the intersections of my experiences with ADHD, mental health, and productivity. Sign up below if you'd like to join our community!
