My name is Ciske Jansen, I am a (Medical) Biology student and currently I am following an internship at the BRC. I will help at the Smart Baby Suit research project and I will write my thesis about it.
Within the Smart Baby Suit Project a romper suit will be developed with sensors that can measure the behaviour and activity of a baby. The goal is to create a tool that can detect developmental disorders, such as autism. To reliably track development in these areas, tools are needed to assess these domains with a dense longitudinal approach.
I will be doing research at people’s homes. I will study baby’s from 14 to 16 months old by observing their behaviour and comparing this to the obtained data.
