Factors influencing Mood and Academic Performance

Started Feb. 13, 2023

Abstract or project description

Kyra's conception of her project began with a detailed journal that she has kept for several years. Kyra plans to explore the effect of habits and other factors that affect mood and academic performance. Data sources may include her journal and datasets on mental health. We discussed the potential of building an app, self-publishing a journal, writing a research paper, and presenting at Polygence and her school board. We will seek to model data from her journal to predict mood, and examine if academic literature reports the same trends in behaviors influencing mood.
