BERD@NFDI Scholarship Recipients: Hafsteinn Einarsson

As postgraduate research student at the Department of Social Statistics of the University of Manchester he is pursuing a PhD in Social Statistics focuding on collecting representative survey data. In his studies, as well as in his prior work as a project manager, he became increasingly aware of the possibilities of using data science techniques to improve survey outcomes. He believes there is great potential in informing survey decisions through these methods but he mentiones that finding a course which systematically applies these techniques to survey research in particular is not easy. Therfor he is greatly appreciate being able to participate in the course Data Science Techniques for Survey Researchers and believes the instruction provides him with helpful information for his current projects and his future work.
