Lok Yu-Kin, Daniel

Bachelor of Science with Honours in Mathematical, Computational and Statistical Sciences

Class of 2019, Singapore
Software engineer at Facebook Singapore

Daniel Lok will be joining Facebook Singapore as a software engineer after graduating from Yale-NUS College, where he majored in Mathematical, Computational and Statistical Sciences. Daniel has been set on this career path since entering the College as he enjoys building things, and finds it very rewarding when people find the things he built to be useful.

Daniel said that his experience at Yale-NUS has enabled and encouraged him to think about and engage with important social issues. In fields such as software engineering, where products can have potentially massive social reach, these are lessons that Daniel finds to be immensely important to keep in mind.

“It goes without saying that Yale-NUS has equipped me with the technical skills I’ll need, but that is something that many universities can offer. The unique thing about Yale-NUS’s curriculum and culture is that it has fundamentally shaped the way I think about the world around me, and my relationship to it.”
