Lauren Paul had always enjoyed math and statistics as far back as high school, when a grade-12 data-management course triggered her interest in data analysis and interpretation.  She originally planned to study a financial application of statistics, with a view to becoming an actuary, so she chose statistics as her major and economics as her minor when she began her undergraduate career here at Queen’s.
