Daniel Suen, STOR-i student

For the last 3 years I have been studying at Lancaster University where, after completing my undergraduate course in Mathematics, I am in my fourth year at Lancaster as part of the Statistics and Operational Research with industry (STOR-i) program.

My time at undergraduate study was very rewarding and enjoyable. The opportunity to focus on one subject appealed to me, as well as meeting lots of like-minded people made the experience fulfilling; I had never been in an environment where people willingly talked about maths before.

Postgraduate study has given me the chance to take a broader perspective of the work I have done and I find the added emphasis on the practical use of the work I am undertaking is a healthy reminder of what I may choose to do in the future.

While studying is naturally a large part of my life, outside of my course I enjoy reading, watching movies and playing a range of sports including football, badminton and korfball. When I first enrolled at university I was eager to try new things and korfball, as a relatively obscure sport, provided me the perfect chance to do so.

I have been an active member of the Lancaster University Korfball Club for four years and as well as contributing as part of the executive committee for two of them, first as Safety Officer then as Treasurer, I continue to attend training and represent the university at tournaments around Britain. I was voted player of the year by my fellow teammates for the 09-10 season.
