Linguistic?

Linguistic

The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

Using STEM to understand ourselves

Using STEM to understand ourselves

Data Analytics adds value

“I work at DCU developing new technologies to help us understand ourselves. We develop smarter methods for the collection of information about a person’s health and performance including those related to moods, decisions and physical well-being — all with their consent. With these varied datasets we use artificial intelligence, or AI, to make sense of what we have measured.

With this approach we are exploring new ways to assess mood disorders, provide advanced warnings of seizure for those with epilepsy and to understand pain and fatigue patterns among different populations. I am also interested in learning more about how people make decisions in the real world outside the laboratory, especially in the context of financial choices.

To do this, we work with doctors, nurses, psychologists, engineers, chemists, social scientists, behavioural economists, experts in computers and statistics, as well as patients and their families.”
