My name is Eva and I am from Vicenza, in Italy. I'm actually studying in Politecnico di Milano, where I'm attending my 1st year of MSc in Mathematical Engineering, major in Quantitative Finance.
My Bachelor's dissertation was about Bitcoin's protocol. It was an incredible experience to join the world of Bitcoin and Blockchain. In particular, the aim of my work was to demonstrate that the possibility that an attacker could affect the system dropped exponentially, under certain conditions. I created a model using the software MATLAB.
My exams are mainly about Stochastic Differential Equations, Real and Functional Analysis, Game Theory, Algorithms and Parallel Computing, Mathematical Finance, Financial Engineering and Computational Finance.
Next year I will follow Machine Learning and Data Mining.
I become passionate about Machine Learning after having undestand the countless applications that can be found in Finance, as well.
Informing investment decisions, using Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, were presented during an event organized by J.P.Morgan and they totally change my way of thinking. I have finally found out a compromise between my background in engineering and Finance: my two big passions.
I usually work with C, C++, Matlab and R.
I am a positive, humble, enthusiastic and ambitious student, prepared to meet the challenges placed before me. I always try to fill my free time with extracurricular activities in order to open my mind. In particular last summer I decided to leave Italy in order to do an au pair-girl experience in Frome, in England. I had a very arduous stay because of some strangeness of the host family. However, thanks to this I had the opportunity to face a totally new domain and to widen my horizons. I'm also very active in the university life: I'm on the board of directors of AIM (Association of Mathematical Engineers).
