Research topics: We hope to use Mobile-AI tools to build large data libraries for training machine learning models used in the development of effective early interventions for kids with autism and related disorders.

Techniques: We develop Mobile Apps (Andorid and iOs) to collect massive amounts of phenotypic data (audio, video, survey) that we combine with genetic and metagenomic data to solve the G+E=P equation for autism and related disorders using statistical learning methods.


Seeking undergrads for: Academic year, Summer

Location: Flexible, with possibilities for remote or on-campus research projects

Required skills: Programming experience - Some Android development experience preferred, but not required.

This lab is particularly interested in mentoring: Undergrads from backgrounds that are underrepresented in STEM, students interested in Android development.

How to apply: Contact Kaiti Dunlap (

Project information: We are working on developing our app, GuessWhat ( to engage children with autism and related disorders across the globe and drive development of new early intervention and data capture systems that can be used for AI-enhanced early detection and treatment of developmental delays.
