Racheal K. Kyalo is a PhD student at The Otto Friedrich University of Bamberg – Germany. Her research in Statistics focusing on Small Area Estimation is the road to ascertaining that nobody is left out. In pursuit of the same, the Global Indicator Framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) advocates disaggregating data in small areas/domains, for instance, according to gender, income, Geographic location, disability, etc. In simple terms, her research focuses on using Small Area Estimation to help solve the SDGs. Racheal’s research focuses on SDGs 1, 2, 3, 5 and 13 – Poverty, zero hunger, good health and wellbeing, Gender equality, and climate action.
In her own words, “her life began at AIMS, AIMS Ghana formed her”. It was at AIMS that her life found direction and focus. At AIMS, she learned that understanding concepts is much better than just excellent grades. As a DAAD PhD scholar, Racheal learnt about DAAD at AIMS Ghana through a seminar.
