My research is focuses on risk factors for Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). Specifically, I am focusing on the role of prenatal risk factors, such as maternal medical conditions and obstetric complications, and perinatal risk factors, such as pre-term labor and infant characteristics in predicting autism diagnosis in the offspring. I am using Machine Learning methods in order to ascertain which risk factors are the most predictive of offspring diagnosis.
The data for this project has been collected by the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University.
