PhD student wins grants

Emily Mitchell, a second year Modelling and Analytics for a Sustainable Society (MASS) PhD student, has been awarded several grants to attend events this year. These give her the opportunity to share her work around statistical analysis of agricultural/soils/climate to aid food security under environmental change. 

She won two grants from CRoNoS COST Action, the first to attend their spring course on Multivariate Data Analysis in Limassol, Cyprus. Whilst in Limassol Emily also attended the 1st CRoNoS workshop on the same topic, which ran in parallel. The second grant will enable Emily to attend their summer course in August on Functional Data Analysis in Iasi, Romania, where she is also presenting a poster at COMPSTAT 2018

The Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) awarded Emily a grant to attend a conference on Elastic Functional and Shape Data Analysis (16-20 July) at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI), Ohio State University, Columbus, USA.

Closer to home, Emily was also selected to give a talk titled ‘Extreme Value Analysis of Top Performing UK Winter Wheat Producers’ at Link’18, the fourth edition of University of Nottingham and University of Nottingham Students’ Union’s student- led interdisciplinary research conference.  She was also one of three School of Mathematical Sciences PhD students who were selected to present a poster at the Houses of Parliament as part of STEM for Britain 2018.  This event is an opportunity for early-career researchers to present and discuss "ground-breaking" and frontier UK research to Members of both Houses of Parliament at Westminster.
