2010 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Home Department: Computer Science, Mathematics
Supported by: Bio-X
Mentor: Daphne Koller, Professor of Computer Science

Laney Kuenzel is a rising junior from Cleveland, Ohio double majoring in math and computer science. This summer, she is working on a computer science project in collaboration with Stanford Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Using machine learning techniques, she is developing a model to predict negative outcomes in premature infants based on physiological data taken within a short period after birth. Her work focuses on two outcomes in particular: intraventricular hemorrhage and bronchopulmonary dysplasia. She chose this research project because it allows her to do computer science work that has important and immediate real-world applications.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 25, 2010:
