Undergraduate Internship in Microbial Growth Data Analysis
For my FSCIS fellowship, I worked at EcoleCentrale's Life Sciences Laboratory. Over the course of my six-week internship, I coded a program (written in C++ and Python) that utilizes image analysis algorithms and logistic regression to predict whether a cell will divide in the next X hours. It currently classifies cells as growing or not with 97% accuracy allowing for predictive analysis, which was not previously used in the laboratory. What drew me to the FSCIS fellowship is my love for the French culture. Professionally, I learned how it is to lead my own project with minimal supervision, and how to ask for help from people more senior than me when necessary.
