About Nicholas J Nelson
Nick Nelson was born in West Palm Beach, but grew up in a small town in New England with beautiful lakes and one solitary traffic light. He met his wife, Jasmin, while studying abroad in Austria, and stayed in Europe to pursue a medical degree at Jagiellonian University in Krakow. There he led a research team in collaboration with Washington University in St. Louis focusing on stroke genetics, and presented this research at the Congress of the European Academy of Neurology. He is overjoyed to be back in his home state and to complete his neurology training at the University of Florida, where he plans to use artificial neural networks to study disease patterns on neuroimaging for demyelinating diseases. Outside of work, Nick enjoys playing guitar and piano, experimenting with digital music creation, and sifting through endless music on the internet in search of new sounds. He also loves to scuba dive, jet ski, or lounge around any body of water.
