The University of Melbourne
Jiani Xie is a student at the University of Melbourne having just completed her final-year study for a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science major) with a Concurrent Diploma in Mathematical Sciences (Statistics/Stochastic Processes path). As an interdisciplinary learner, she enjoys absorbing the knowledge in both fields and always finds it fascinating when they interact and connect with each other. Last year, Jiani had an opportunity to work on a supervised summer project in applied statistics, which evaluated and analysed the performance of deep learning models. The experience sparked her enthusiasm for mathematical research and inspired her to pursue further studies in probability models together with various areas related. Jiani is interested in stochastic modelling and random processes in particular and would like to learn more about pure mathematics as well. Outside of her studies, Jiani loves music, travelling, reading, and taking a walk-in nature. Being a math’s tutor for more than two years, she has developed a strong interest in teaching, eager to help people who want to know more about mathematics in the future.
