Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

EEG waves and brain states

There are many publicly available EEG datasets available. For this project, one could explore how different wave frequencies are associated with different brain states. Other things can be explored as well. For example, how does moving a finger affect brain waves in motor areas versus non motor areas?

mental health outcomes

A more population based approach study would be using publicly available kaggle datasets to understand the effects of mental health. Many different aspects could be explored (e.g depression) and one could look at individual outcomes (e.g. happiness, quality of life) or societal outcomes (e.g. overall happiness of country). This project would provide a student with tools to create a hypothesis, generate the results, and create a report based on findings. We could also explore issues of justice.

Your first machine learning project

There are many publicly available datasets that are used towards machine learning/deep learning. For this project, we could use one of them and explore a few different statistical tools (e.g. neural networks, logistic regression) and see how good our predictor could be.

Coding skills

R, python, Matlab, C++, STATA
