Success for the School at the Research Students Conference (RSC) in Probability and Statistics

Sunday 4th June, 2017

The Research Students Conference (RSC) in Probability and Statistics took place at Durham University between Tuesday 18th and Friday 21st April. Five postgraduates students in Statistics attended; Salihah Alghamdi, Randa Alharbi, Eilidh Jack, Bader Lafi Q Alruwaili and Suzy Whoriskey. Bader and Randa both presented a poster, while Eilidh, Salihah and Suzy presented a talk. Suzy said:

“The conference was a great opportunity to present our own work to other PhD students in the UK & Ireland and as well network and meet friends from other universities!

Eilidh and I both attended the castle tour which was out of this world! It's an 11th century castle and it feels it! The conference formal dinner was also held there, followed by a ceilidh in the Great Hall... Obviously, being the only Scots there, we did our best to represent the university by dancing every single dance.

The level of talks this year was great; everyone that presented done so confidently and all the talks were very interesting. Eilidh won the award for Best Talk!”
