about me.

Hey 👋🏻 I'm Lauren Pearson, an incoming pre-medical student passionate about healthcare innovation. I'm also an international neurodiversity advocate ♾️ and public speaker 🗣️. I have spoken at numerous events by sharing my experience as a young neurodivergent changemaker.

In the past, I explored using brain-computer interface technology to create strength-based autism diagnostic testing. My current interests lie in exploring neuro-oncology research 🧠 (esp. w/ glioblastoma + pediatric brain tumours) and artificial intelligence. I love exploring new ways to further my intellectual curiosity and personal growth 📈.
