Data Analysis Australia has an ongoing commitment to developing the next generation of mathematicians, statisticians, data analysts and data scientists. We go beyond just talking about it, and provide sponsorship plus give our time to many events.
Donna Hill and Graeme Ward recently supervised a third year student from the University of Western Australia, Oscar Jungstedt, in a practical research project. Oscar investigated random number generation, with the aim of assessing the quality of the randomness in some of the most widely used analysis tools available.
Junior Maths Olympiad
Data Analysis Australia continued our sponsorship of the annual Western Australian Junior Mathematics Olympiad, held at the University of Western Australia. We have been sponsoring the Olympiad for many years and, as usual, Managing Director, Dr John Henstridge, attended the event and presented the Data Analysis Australia Award of Excellence.
Young Statisticians' Workshop
In late September, the bi-annual Western Australian Young Statisticians' Workshop was held and attended by several consultants. In addition to supporting the conference through our attendance, Data Analysis Australia provided monetary sponsorship and three of our consultants, Brett Andrijich, Katy Proctor and Fabian D’Agnone, were on the organising committee.
