Young Statisticians’ Section of the ISA

Kathleen O’Sullivan (President of the Irish Statistical Association (ISA), School of Mathematical Sciences, University College Cork) launched the Young Statisticians’ Section of the ISA, the Young-ISA, on Friday October 04, 2019, in the Glen Royal Hotel, Maynooth, Co. Kildare.

The ISA formed its Young-ISA  to provide a forum for career-young statisticians, that is, statisticians in the early stages of their careers, across Ireland.  This is an exciting initiative by the ISA to encourage and nurture career-young statisticians.

This inaugural meeting, organised by the Young-ISA Section, showcased the breadth of research undertaken by career-young statisticians in Ireland. I would like to specially thank the keynote speakers, Drs Norma Bargary (University of Limerick) and Aidan Boland (Edge by Ascential) for providing insights into their career paths from academia and industry, and to all those who contributed talks and participated in the round table discussion.

Welcome from Head of School



Mathematics is the language of Science. The great George Boole, whose bicentenary occurred in 2015, was the first Professor of Mathematics at this University.  The School of Mathematical Sciences at UCC is made up of Departments of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics. It is part of the College of Science, Engineering and Food Science. 


The academic mission of the School reaches across the University, its research institutions and affiliated Medical and Dental Hospitals.  On the teaching side, we maintain an extensive curriculum serving the needs of a diverse student population — more than 2,750 students. Our deliveries include accredited undergraduate and post-graduate programmes in Actuarial Science. The School has a tradition of community outreach particularly focused on stimulating interest in Mathematics among pre-University students. The Boole2School (B2S) project is a recent development in this area.


The School is committed to the realisation of excellence in research. The themes and areas of strength span a range of areas within the broad fields of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics. Some of the research is pure and theoretical while other work is more application and data analytic in nature.
