Student Sharing

TUNG Kam Chuen

Studying mathematics in CUHK is humbling, yet enriching. Here, I’ve met peers who seem to know infinitely more than I do; postgraduate students who babble math jargon at ease; professors who are friendly and always eager to help. Every day, I learn something from the people in this intelligent community.
