Yuliia Kravchenko

  • Data Science FellowMathematics

Yuliia is a PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Applied Mathematics in Computer Science Department of Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University.

Yuliia’s area of interest is Topological Data Analysis, which she studies under the supervision of Prof. Yuriy Mileyko (Department of Mathematics, UH Manoa). She is working on analyzing weather data using homological tools and developing a notion of homological central sets.

Yuliia has been actively participating in organizing and conducting mathematical competitions for school children in Ukraine. She is a leader of Ukrainian team at European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad (since 2013), as well as a member of EGMO Advisory Board (since 2017).

Being a part of Hawaii Data Science Institute allows Yuliia to work in a cross-disciplinary setting, apply mathematics to the “real world” problems. Currently, Yuliia is developing a Probabilistic Programming module with Hawai’i Data Science Institute and advising on the analysis of sensors deployed in an agronomic setting.
