I studied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Grigore Moisil high school in Timisoara, Romania. For my undergrad, I moved to the UK and started at Imperial College London studying MEng Joint Mathematics and Computer Science. During my time at Imperial, I did a few different internships, including a 4 months placement with G-Research in my 3rd year.
I decided to apply to G-Research without having much knowledge of what computing in finance meant. The company had a good reputation among other students of having very strong technical people and a healthy company culture. I was happy to confirm this during my placement and so I re-joined G-Research a year later as a graduate. I'm enjoying the work as we are faced with interesting problems related to both software engineering and finance. Also, everyone in the team is easy going and a pleasure to work with.
