Associate Professor Josef Dick has featured in an article in an Austrian newspaper,

The piece, written in German, reveals the 41-year-old's childhood penchant for counting money (not necessarily possessing money!), which led his parents to believe he would grow up to pursue banking.

A/Prof Dick is currently attending the 10th IMACS Seminar on Monte Carlo Methods in Linz, Austria, along with Dr Quoc Thong Le Gia, A/Prof Frances Kuo, Dr Zdravko Botev, and Alexander Gilbert. The full article can be found here.
