Yiyi Ma (University of NSW)

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics
Master of Science in Statistics

Yiyi graduated from Imperial College London with a BSc degree in Mathematics in 2020 and an MSc degree in Statistics (Data Science) in 2021. Her interests in applied and computational statistics have grown over the past four years. She explored different statistical models and machine learning methods through various student statistical projects in fields, including politics, finance, cyber security, etc. Currently, she is focusing on Bayesian approaches for inference and data assimilation, especially the techniques for nonlinear/non-Gaussian state-space models., as well as modelling the error for physical process-based systems using machine learning methods.

Yiyi is also fluent in Chinese and she has translated her bio to celebrate DARE’s cultural diversity
