EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training Cloud Computing for Big Data


Heather Woodhouse

I graduated from Newcastle University in 2020, with a Masters degree in Mathematics and Statistics. My fourth year project was titled 'Bayesian Inference for Serially Dependent Sea-surge Extremes', with a focus on the recent Hurricane Dorian which struck the Bahamas.  

Programming has always been one of my weaker areas which I am keen to improve. The CDT offers the opportunity for me to study aspects of computer science whilst keeping an element of statistics, which drew me to the course. Additionally, the field of Data Science is one which can lead to a wide range of career paths and I am looking forward to exploring the options when I finish with the CDT.  

Outside of studying, I enjoy going to music festivals and am a member of the Dance Society.
