Research Intern, The Wall Lab

Summer 2017, 2018 - Stanford, CA

Through the Stanford Institute of Medical Research Summer Research Program, I worked as a Research Intern at The Wall Lab, which focuses on AI/ML solutions for non-neurotypical diseases. There, I worked to develop a machine-learning classifier for diagnosing Autism Spectrum Disorder based on a patient’s accuracy in emotional recognition and level of facial engagement, working to determine if a non-genetic evaluation could effectively diagnose autism.

My summer’s work eventually culminated in a paper submitted and accepted to the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR), which is linked here.

At The Wall Lab, I worked under Prof. Dennis Wall and Dr. Nick Haber.
