    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I use AI models of of exploratory and social learning in order to better understand early human learning and development, and conversely, I use our understanding of early human learning to make robust AI models that learn in exploratory and social ways. Based on this, I develop AI-powered learning tools for children, geared in particular towards the education of those with developmental issues such as the Autism Spectrum Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, in the mold of my work on the Autism Glass Project. My formal graduate training in pure mathematics involved extending partial differential equation theory in cases involving the propagation of waves through complex media such as the space around a black hole. Since then, I have transitioned to the use of machine learning in developing both learning tools for children with developmental disorders and AI and cognitive models of learning.

    Clinical Instructor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

    Bio Dr. Laura Hack is a Postdoctoral Fellow and Clinical Instructor under the mentorship of Drs. Leanne Williams, Alan Schatzberg, and Ruth O?Hara. She is a translational clinician with a research passion for integrating multiple types of biological and environmental data using advanced analytic techniques into a neuroscience-based taxonomy of mood, anxiety, and stressor-related disorders. Laura envisions herself as a ?psychiatrist of the future,? incorporating genetic information, brain imaging, blood-based markers, and data from wearable sensors into diagnostic and treatment decisions to help relieve the suffering that arises from our current trial-and-error approach.

    Bio I am a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Alistair Boettiger in the Department of Developmental Biology. I have always been interested in understanding regulatory mechanisms that lead to tissue or cell type specific gene expression. During my PhD in the lab of Galit Lahav at Harvard Medical School, I studied how temporal dynamics of a tumor suppressor transcription factor, p53 regulate the dynamics of gene expression in response to DNA damage. In the Boettiger lab, I'm interested how specificity between enhancer-promoter interactions is achieved using super-resolution microscopy.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests are broadly in eating and mood disorders. My research program is comprised of two primary lines of research. First, I am interested in elucidating the mechanisms of eating and internalizing disorders, with an emphasis on understanding the neural mechanisms of these disorders. Second, I study novel methods of diagnosis and classification of eating disorders and eating behaviors, especially dietary restraint. A long-term goal of my research is to leverage findings to improve treatments for those with eating disorders.
