PhD Candidate


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 statistics, computational statistics, modelling time series and spatio-temporal data, and model selection have grown during the past four years. She explored different statistical models and machine learning methods through various student statistical projects in fields, including politics, finance and cyber security. Her master’s thesis was on the application of Hawkes process to network data. In joining DARE, she hopes to learn more theories and computing techniques for Bayesian inference and discover more possibilities of the applications of data science in resources. After six years of study in the UK, she longs to spend the next few years in a place with fewer rainy days.
