Profile

Clinical, Research and/or Teaching Responsibilities

Frederick Shic, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in University of Washington's Department of Pediatrics. Dr. Shic's current research interests include applications of eye-tracking and functional near infrared spectroscopy to the study of the social and cognitive development in infants, toddlers, and children with autism and other development disorders, and the development of new technologies and methodologies for enriching both our understanding of neuropsychiatric conditions and the lives of affected children and their families. Previously, as an Assistant Professor, Dr. Shic led the Technology and Innovation Laboratory at Yale University's Child Study Center.

Prior to this, he was an Associate Research Scientist under Dr. Katarzyna Chawarska at the Infant and Toddler Developmental Disabilities Clinic and Yale Early Social Cognition Laboratory, also at Yale University. Dr. Shic completed an NIMH T32 training program in childhood neuropsychiatric disorders led Drs. James Leckman and Elena Grigorenko in the Yale Child Study Center. Dr. Shic received his doctorate in Computer Science from Yale University and an undergraduate degree in Engineering and Applied Sciences from the California Institute of Technology.

During his graduate work, Dr. Shic developed computational and mathematical approaches for analyzing eye-tracking data, with a focus on what these techniques can tell us about the social and cognitive development of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Prior to this, Dr. Shic was software engineer at the Sony Interactive Studios of America, and, later, a researcher at the Huntington Medical Research Institutes, where he conducted research in 1H and 13C magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), developing techniques for quantifying and visualizing brain metabolism and neurochemistry.

Frederick Shic and team

Today Dr. Shic leads the Seattle Children's Innovative Technologies Laboratory at the Center for Child Health, Behavior and Development at Seattle Children's Research Institute. This laboratory has the goal of using technology to improve the lives of individuals with ASD and the lives of their families, combining expertise in technology with expertise in developmental science to create a bridge between where a child with autism is, and where he or she can be. The methods used by this laboratory include biomarker and software development, robotics, complex analytics, and hardware engineering.
