Amirah Saeed Alharthi
I completed my undergraduate degree in Mathematics at Taif University, Saudi Arabia, before working as a banker for a few years I then obtained a MSc in statistics from the department of Mathematics, Taif University in 2013, while working full time as a mathematics teacher.
In January 2016, I started my PhD at the University of Leeds in the Statistics department of the School of Mathematics, under the primary supervision of Prof Charles Taylor and co-supervision of Dr. Jochen Voss. My primary research focus is on Statistical Learning, specializing on random forests and classification decision trees. I expect to submit my thesis and complete my PhD in 2019.
Apart from research, I have participated in the statistics postgraduate seminar; completed a few statistical courses; attended and presented several conferences, workshops and talks, as listed below:
