    Postdoctoral Scholar, Genetics

    BioPardis Miri, PhD, is a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University where she is focused on building technology to facilitate mental well being. With a PhD in computer science and years of training in area of affective science (under the supervision of Professor James J. Gross), Pardis has assembled a unique team (see to not only run clinical studies to evaluate their efficacy in changing emotion, mood, and stress but also build product-ready technology.

    Pardis is the principal investigator of a large multi-disciplinary project (FAR) to design, build, and evaluate a wearable system tailored to the needs of children with emotion dysregulation, especially children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. FAR aims to empower them to manage their problem behaviors in a more adaptive way. The FAR project involves collaborations between the departments of Computer Science, Psychology, Mechanical Engineering, and the School of Medicine at Stanford University.

    Pardis is being advised by Professors Micheal Snyder, Professor Keith Marzullo at the University of Maryland iSchool, whose research is on distributed systems, and by Professor James Gross, whose research underlies much of what we now know about emotion regulation. She is also working with Professor Antonio Hardan of the Stanford School of Medicine, whose research is on children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
