Biography

Claire Muscat is a coterm student at Stanford University pursuing her Master’s degree in computer science with a focus in human-computer interaction. She attended Village Christian High School where she captained the varsity cross country team and graduated as salutatorian. Claire was also a Gold Award Girl Scout. To earn her 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 as a student researcher in the school of medicine studying the pathology of fibrotic diseases and was published as a contributing author on multiple papers. 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. Claire is currently working with a research lab at Cornell’s medical school to better understand how NLP and computer vision can be leveraged to better understand changes in depression over time. In her free time, Claire loves singing in her a cappella group, participating in Christian fellowship, spending time outdoors, running, and making something yummy in the kitchen. After graduation, Claire is eager to dive into the healthtech industry to use her unique combination of skill sets in biocomputation and design to push the boundary of medical technology and better patient lives.
