Hi, my name is Michael Karlovich, and this is my website! As an overview,  I am a 27-year-old residing in the suburbs of NYC. In 2015 I graduated from Union College in Schenectady, New York. At Union, I received a top-notch multidisciplinary liberal arts education while I majored in cognitive neuroscience and philosophy.

Along with a skill set of excellent programming, statistics, and data analytics, at the core of my scientific background lies a knowledge-base of cognitive, biological, and computational neuroscience, sensation, and perception (in particular vision), and psychological and clinical research methods.

I have spent the last five years since graduating from Union College conducting scientific research on several subjects ranging from cognitive psychology to computational neuroscience to pharmaceutical trials to epidemiology. In this time I helped advance several projects; contributing to three articles published in the top journal, Neurology, and three additional articles currently in peer-review.

As a hobby and fun way of simultaneously developing my programming abilities and applying and exploring the principles of neuroscience, I began deeply exploring digital art. After a few years of honing my craft, I realized I developed a suite of unique techniques to make novel and beautiful digital creations. 


Once I began to become more confident in the quality of my work I began sharing it with people close to me. Upon receiving many comments from family and friends, along with some very unlikely serendipitous encounters with leaders in the fashion industry with whom I had to chance to share my work,  I realized people were recognizing what I was doing as not just creative output, but as art worthy of display and use in fashion and product design. From all this feedback I received, I decided to leverage my creative talents, neuroscience knowledge, and programming skills to incorporate a small business in the form of an online store, The webstore sells apparel, home decor products, and canvas prints featuring my work and designs.

At present, the several scientific projects I had been pursuing are coming to an end, with all of them either been published or currently in peer-review. As my time has freed up with each successive project becoming completed, I progressively developed programs to automate much of my company's operations. With my six projects completed, and my online business almost entirely automated, I am left with an abundance of time to pursue a full-time career separate from Recursia. Thus, I am now seeking to take my career to its next level!

I am at a stage where I have a  good sense of my strengths and weaknesses, a tenacious work ethic, and wield a solid command over the subject-matter which nearly the last decade of my life has been dedicated to. Most importantly, I love what I do and am eager to develop my knowledge and understanding to continue to produce world-class work. My wide skill set can be applied to several industries and fields.
