As a Mathematician to d-fine
As part of my Bachelor's degree in mathematics at the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, I spent a semester abroad in Vienna. I then did my Master's degree at the Technical University of Dortmund. Internships and work-study activities led me from the Max Planck Institute to working in the insurance sector as a d-fine consultant.
I became aware of d-fine through a university careers fair. I was immediately inspired by what I learned, hearing about d-fine’s analytical focus, following a scientific approach similar to my academic experience.
My project focus - mathematical problem solving in highly complex banking processes
After joining, I worked on a variety of projects in trading systems, market risk, regulatory reporting, and database building at several banks. There are so many highly complex processes running in the background at banks – I find it exciting that I get to help shape these specific processes.
My mathematical skills help me to find correlations and recognize patterns in these processes in order to understand and effectively analyse the problem. As with mathematical problem solving, I typically start with a simple prototype and then systematically apply this approach to the overall problem.
My activities are very varied because individual solutions have to be found again and again, which are then refined and developer further. I enjoy working both professionally and technically and for this reason, I have specialized in trading systems implementation. d-fine design solutions for banks’ business models, implement them and also automate processes in existing trading systems.
What I particularly value – space and time for my further development
I particularly appreciate the fact that I can develop professionally and personally at d-fine. I have already attended many training courses as part of the d-fine Academy, which supplement my daily project work and often provide a valuable change of pace and topic.
In addition, I am studying an MBA at Mannheim Business School, generously sponsored and supported by d-fine. Here, I learn completely different content than in my mathematics studies, which I can apply in my project work.
