I was born and raised in Blackpool, before completing my MSci Mathematics degree at Lancaster University. It was here that I first came across the STOR-i programme on an open day during my third year. Throughout my degree, I particularly enjoyed statistics and algebra modules, the former of which led me to apply to STOR-i in my fourth year.
STOR-i is a doctoral training centre in which participants enrol on a 1 year MRes and then a 3 year PhD programme. The course involves statistics and operational research with many links to industrial companies. For more information, visit the STOR-i website here.
Lancaster is one of the top ten universities in the UK, with over 12,000 students from over 100 countries. STOR-i is a joint venture between its Mathematics and Statistics and Management Science departments. The University website can be found here.
EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) provides the funding for the STOR-i programme. In these areas, they spend around 800 million pounds investing in research and postgraduate training across the UK. Their website can be found here.
