Prize for Innovative Statistics Master’s Thesis

On 24 October, Victoria Racher was awarded the "Förderpreis der Österreichischen Statististischen Gesellschaft" by Statistics Austria in Vienna for her Master's thesis on "Nonparametric Approaches to Approximate Bayesian Computation".

Am 24. Oktober wurde Victoria Racher bei der Statistik Austria in Wien für ihre Masterarbeit zum Thema „Nichtparametrische Ansätze zu Approximate Bayesian Computation“ mit dem Förderpreis der Österreichischen Statistischen Gesellschaft ausgezeichnet. Dabei wurde insbesondere die innovative Kombination verschiedener moderner Ansätze zur validen Analyse komplexer Daten in ihrer Arbeit gewürdigt. Für Frau Racher ist dies bereits die dritte Auszeichnung, die sie heuer für ihre Masterarbeit erhalten hat: Schon die American Statistical Association und die International Biometric Society hatten ihre Abschlussarbeit mit Preisen gewürdigt. Racher hat neben dem Master in Mathematik auch einen Master-Abschluss in Data Science erworben und ist damit die erste Absolventin Österreichs mit diesen beiden akademischen Graden. Aktuell startet sie eine Dissertation im Bereich Statistik, unter Betreuung von Univ.-Prof. Arne Bathke, und in Kooperation mit dem Institut für Anatomie und Zellbiologie an der PMU.
