Matthew C

- Research Program Mentor

PhD at Boston University


Neuroscience, data science


My research involves using computational techniques for remote monitoring of patients in early and late stage clinical trials. I also have experience developing computer-based neural simulations to identify network conditions that differ between Parkinson’s disease and healthy brains. I enjoy exercising and playing tennis and golf in my free time.

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.

Using sensors to monitor patient symptoms

Sensors are increasingly used to monitor patient symptoms from home. This project is great for students interested in learning healthcare-related programming and data science.

Therapeutic targets in disease

There are many exciting new drug technologies and molecular targets for treating various diseases. This project would invite students to review the current therapeutic landscape of a disease of interest.

Coding skills

python, R, matlab

Teaching experience

I have mentored several graduate and college level students on topics related to neuroscience and data science. Additionally, I have over 150 hours of teaching assistant experience in graduate level neuroscience courses.
