Install Python and Jupyter

Install Anaconda which includes Python 3 and Jupyter notebook.

Otherwise, for advanced users, install Jupyter notebook with pip3 install jupyter.

Create a new blog post as usual

Run the following commands in your Terminal, substituting <MY_WEBSITE_FOLDER> and my-post with the file path to your Academic website folder and a name for your blog post (without spaces), respectively:

hugo new  --kind post post/my-post
cd <MY_WEBSITE_FOLDER>/content/post/my-post/

Create or upload a Jupyter notebook

Run the following command to start Jupyter within your new blog post folder. Then create a new Jupyter notebook (New > Python Notebook) or upload a notebook.

jupyter notebook

Convert notebook to Markdown

jupyter nbconvert Untitled.ipynb --to markdown --NbConvertApp.output_files_dir=.

# Copy the contents of Untitled.md and append it to index.md:
cat Untitled.md | tee -a index.md

# Remove the temporary file:
rm Untitled.md

Edit your post metadata

Open index.md in your text editor and edit the title etc. in the front matter according to your preference.

To set a featured image, place an image named featured into your post’s folder.

For other tips, such as using math, see the guide on writing content with Academic.

I am a postdoctoral researcher in cognitive neurosciences studying the neural mechanisms of perceptual consciousness and metacognition with psychophysics and computational modelling in healthy individuals as well as invasive electrophysiology with psychiatric and neurological patients. My goal is to find a mechanistic explanation of how single neurons in the human brain explains the fluctuations of our subjective perceptual experience within a single trial. I am currently hosted at the Laboratoire de Psychologie et NeuroCognition by Dr. Nathan Faivre, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
