Kamila Fačevicová

Kamila Fačevicová is an Assistant Professor at Palacký University Olomouc, Czech Republic. She reached her Ph.D. in 2016 and within her thesis she focused on coordinate representation of two-factorial compositional data – compositional tables. Nowadays she dedicates the main part of her research interest to the study of the geometric structure and properties of multi-factorial compositional data. Compositional tables, as well as multi-factorial compositional data, represent a natural extension of the traditional concept of vector compositional data. It turns out that a better understanding of their structure opens the door to the development of a new family of compositional methods focusing on relations between the constituting variables. Besides this main topic, she is also active in applied research, ranging from medicine or politology to geochemistry. Within these applications, she combines compositional, robust and classical approaches to the data analysis, what also helps to reveal new topics for theoretical developments. An important part of her academic life belongs to teaching and work with students, when she helps, together with her colleagues, to grow up a new generation of (compositional) statisticians.

 

 

Raimon Tolosana-Delgado

Raimon is a senior scientist at the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf). He studied Engineering Geology at the Tehnical University of Catalunya and the Universiy of Barcelona, and completed his PhD at the University of Girona. Ever since his diploma thesis he has been working in applications of compositional data analysis in geology, environmental sciences, and geo-engineering, most particularly in sedimentology, ore geology and mining. He holds the Felix Chayes Prize of the International Association of Mathematical Geosciences for his research on these topics. His areas of interest cover, additionally to compositional data analysis, geostatistics, model-data integration, predictive geometallurgy, Bayesian statistics and R programming.
