How was your experience with the program?
It was really informative and exciting. I was intimidated at first because this was my first exposure to the world of research, but everyone involved in the program was helpful and welcoming.
What was the most exciting thing you learned?
I learned about machine learning, which is applicable to so many fields of research and was a lot easier to put into practice than I expected.
Briefly summarize your research project
I used machine learning to try to predict changes in cell morphology from gene expression data.
How has this program and working with your professor/research team helped you develop as a scientist?
This program made me more confident in my abilities to learn skills through application. I learned so much in such a short amount of time, more than I think I could learn in the same amount of time in school.
