Menstrual Cycles, 50 Cent, and Right Swipes
Ahnjili Zhuparris came across a study on the menstrual cycle’s influence on cognition and emotion and was curious to see how hormonal changes may affect her day-to-day behavior. She figured her internet use may be a convenient and easy data set to assemble and examine for this effect. Using a few chrome plugins, Ahnjili was able to see not only where she spent her time online, but how she interacted with sites like Facebook and Youtube. Her analysis yielded some interesting patterns. In this talk, Ahnjili shows the differences in how she browsed Facebook, swiped in Tinder, and listened to music on YouTube.

She presents this important project at the 2015 Quantified Self Conference.

In this video, she discusses the abnormally low numbers and how she managed to conceive and give birth to a very healthy baby despite all of the odds against her.
