Biography

Claire Muscat is a senior at Stanford University studying computer science with a focus in biocomputation. She attended Village Christian High School where she captained the varsity cross country team and graduated as salutatorian. To earn her Girl Scout Gold Award, Claire wrote and illustrated a children’s book in both English and Spanish and created a YouTube channel with content used to excite children about STEM. Once at Stanford, she spent two years researching the pathology of fibrotic diseases and was published as a contributing author on multiple publications. Claire also interned at the FDA where she worked on a project aimed at creating regulatory standards for AI-based medical devices. Combining her heart for justice and her technical skill set in computer science, Claire volunteered at International Justice Mission, an organization dedicated to ending human trafficking and slavery around the globe, as a Global Technology Intern where she prototyped a resource database for workers in IJM field offices. In the summer of 2021, she acted as a TA for the Stanford Institutes of Medical Research and interned with Stanford Healthcare as part of their IT team. In her free time, Claire loves singing in her a cappella group, participating in Christian fellowship, spending time in nature, running, and making something yummy in the kitchen. After graduation, Claire is eager to dive into the healthtech industry to use her skillset to push the boundary of medical technology and better patient lives.
