An article has been published about the activity of the Applied Mathematics Club and its leader, Dr. Hanna Oleksiivna Yailymova, who is also an employee of the Department of Mathematical Modeling and Data Analysis at Kyiv Polytechnic Institute.
The department’s instructors place a great deal of emphasis on working with talented young people, involving both students and high school students in clubs, and mentors set interesting tasks, encouraging young people to engage in scientific activities. The main scientific direction of the department is the methods of large data analysis, machine learning, and image recognition based on various types of data, primarily satellite data.
The scientific interests of Hanna Oleksiivna Yailymova are satellite monitoring, the development of maps of the Earth’s surface, analysis and processing of geospatial data, and GIS. The young scientist is an active participant in national and international projects in the field of satellite monitoring and data analysis, including projects of the National Research Fund of Ukraine, the World Bank, and the European Commission. Recently, the scientist was awarded a scholarship by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
Participants in the Applied Mathematics Club under the guidance of Hanna Yailymova, namely bachelor’s and master’s students Volodymyr Kuzin, Yevhen Hryhorenko, and Oleksiy Dyakun, took part in the NASA Space App Challenge hackathon, where they made it to the international stage and won valuable prizes. Club members also participate in ongoing department projects.
We are confident that the knowledge of mathematics, physics, programming, as well as teamwork skills will lead our students to success!
