About Martha Gizaw

Martha is a senior who arrived at William & Mary in 2017 as a Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Scholar with an associate degree from Northern Virginia Community College. Despite her challenges of being diagnosed with mild disabilities and caring for two younger siblings with significant disabilities in a single-mother household, she thrives academically and is passionate about neuroinformatics and its ability to advance the understanding of autism, ADD, and other neurological disorders.

Outside of the classroom, Martha is Vice President of the Neurodiversity Student Group. She also participates in the Association of Computing Machinery and Society of Women in Computing. Starting this year, she assists Professor Patel with his research in the Mathematics Department while building a faculty-student relationship in time for the beginning of her interdisciplinary honors thesis. Whenever Martha is not too busy, you may find her exploring Colonial Williamsburg.
