Donal McCarthy Postgraduate Research Scholarship in Statistics
The School of Mathematical Sciences would like to congratulate Ms. Yihan Wang on being awarded The Donal McCarthy Postgraduate Research Scholarship in Statistics. Yihan is a 2nd year Ph.D. student in Statistics and has been awarded €5000 euros to assist in her research area. Yihan’ s research area focuses on longevity risk, especially the mortality improvement modelling for demographic data in Ireland and the UK. This award is funded by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) and is named after Dr. Donal McCarthy. Dr. McCarthy was President of UCC from 1967 to 1978 and is also a former Director General of the CSO. The scholarship was founded to promote university research in the area of Official Statistics and is awarded to students in areas of research such as survey sampling, multivariate methods, time series, and small area estimation.

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.
