Young Statisticians Conference
Anna Munday, Jennifer Bramwell, Sarah Bruce and Joshua Bon have recently returned from the 2015 Young Statisticians’ Conference in Adelaide. As one of the keynote speakers, Anna provided an insight into the random and variable life of a consulting statistician. She also contributed to discussions on various panels as well as fulfilling a judging role at the conference.
Jennifer’s talk discussed the principles, assumptions and applications of Population Projections, whereas Sarah addressed Automation of Summary Displays, particularly focusing on presenting summary outputs in a user friendly manner. Josh attended as a winner of the SSAI WA Branch Travel Grant.
All reported that they thoroughly enjoyed the conference and associated activities. Jennifer, Sarah and Josh particularly enjoyed meeting and networking with other young statisticians.
We warmly welcomed back Taryn Major from her study leave in February. Taryn has spent the last year completing her Master’s Degree in Biostatistics through Macquarie University, a consortium university of the Biostatistics Collaboration of Australia. As part of her studies, Taryn conducted a research project into the health of babies born to mothers with serious mental health issues.
Data Analysis Australia’s Graduate Statistician Sarah Bruce (nee Stone) was married to Maclain in December 2014. The ceremony and reception were both held locally, with the day’s celebrations coming to a conclusion at sunset on the Heathcote foreshore. Everyone at Data Analysis Australia would like to congratulate Sarah and Maclain and wish them all the best for a long and joyful future together.

This was the sixth time students from Penrhos College have visited our company as part of the Mathematicians in Schools program.
