Kartik Pradeepan

Neuroscience Doctoral Student | Western University

I am a neuroscience doctoral student working at the interface between genetics, neuroscience, and artificial intelligence.

My research involves computationally modelling early circuit development of human stem cell-derived Autism Spectrum Disorder and Rett Syndrome neurons with very specific mutations. Using electrophysiological data from these neurons on a multielectrode array, I am investigating the single unit and network-level differences of these neurons.

I have an interest in combining multi-omic bioinformatics, as it relates to healthcare and medicine, with fit-for-purpose machine learning approaches to aid decision making to improve health outcomes and reveal novel insights about the body. I also have a passion for scientific communication and open science, and appreciate the importance of disseminating knowledge.
