Quantitive Trader, SIG, 1

“I have always been passionate about STEM subjects and had a love of Maths and Physics at school. I graduated from the University of Warwick in 2020 with first class honours in Masters of Mathematics, Operation Research, Statistics and Economics specialising in Actuarial and Financial Mathematics.   Following this, I joined Susquehanna International Group through the Quantitative Trading Graduate Programme, where I now focus on trading equity stock options. I have always been fascinated by problem solving and thinking about strategy and I am very fortunate that I get to apply these skills to real-world puzzles in financial markets every day.  Outside of this, I am an avid sports fan following everything from Gaelic football to darts! I was awarded the ‘GoldMark Award of Excellence’ for volunteering at my local sports club through various charity events and coaching junior teams.   I am enthusiastic about improving diversity within STEM subjects and the world of finance and trading, in particular. In SIG we have started a Women’s Trading Committee, which regularly meets to discuss these goals.”
