Vásárhelyi Awarded DSSG Fellowship

May 22, 2018

Our 3rd year PhD student in Network Science Orsolya Vásárhelyi has been chosen to take part in the prestigious Data Science for Social Good Fellowship program this summer in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Data Science for Social Good Fellowship is a University of Chicago summer program to train aspiring data scientists to work on data mining, machine learning, big data, and data science projects with social impact. Working closely with governments and nonprofits, fellows take on real-world problems in education, health, energy, public safety, transportation, economic development, international development, and more.

The 2018 program is bringing 24 aspiring data scientists from across the world to Chicago and 15 to Lisbon. Fellows are current (or recent) graduate and undergraduate students from quantitative and computational fields – from computer science and machine learning to statistics, math, physical sciences and engineering, to social sciences, public health, and public policy.
