Biography

Swen always have had interest in the study of relationships between people and patterns in societies. The combination of a statistics major and sociology minor in her Bachelor's degree was an uncommon choice among her peers. This unique combination led her to working on her Honours dissertation looking at socio-economic status and mortality risks, using siblings in the comparison. The dissertation was a joint work between the Statistics department and COMPASS (Centre of Methods and Policy Application in the Social Sciences), a research centre that is based in the University of Auckland.

Swen is currently a doctoral student at ANU focusing on quantification of latent socio-economic health for countries. The relevant methodology involves integrating latent variable modeling with causal modeling by using Bayesian methods and inference.
