We are pleased to invite you to February’s Sussex Data Science Meetup. This event will be conducted remotely via zoom.
This month’s talk is being presented by Meirin Oan Evans, a Particle Physics Ph.D. student at the University of Sussex and is on the DISCnet scheme.
DISCnet is an STFC Centre for Doctoral Training, providing a platform to train a new generation of post-graduate data-intensive scientists. As well as providing additional data science training, the students get to carry out two 3-month industrial placements.
Meirin is currently in an industrial placement with the Brilliant Club and will be talking about:
The Brilliant Club works with schools and universities across the UK. We mobilise the PhD community to support less advantaged students to access the most competitive universities and succeed when they get there.
We conduct internal evaluations and commission external evaluations of the charity’s programmes. Our programmes have proven impact.
This analysis compares pre-pandemic data with those from the pandemic to provide insights into how to best to support less advantaged students to access the most competitive universities going forward.
Please ensure you have zoom installed and running on your computer or device in advance. Then, make yourself comfortable, optionally with a drink and a snack at hand, and click the link to join.
