About me

Hi. I'm Mark Brezina.
A young man, of Czech-Danish Decent living in the suburb of Hvidovre, close to Copenhagen Denmark. I study mathematics and statistics at UCPH, doing my best to advance to the Candidate degree in Insurance mathematics. 

My dream is to work my way towards a career in quantitative finance, quantitative risk management and Actuarial science. I dream of working in mathematical risk modelling at a large financial institution or financial service consultancy.

I have many good qualities, I'm  smart, a member of mensa with an estimated 160 IQ. I've done a large variety of interesting things; won a design award, travelled the world, lived in Singapore, London and Copenhagen, travelled in America, Europe and Asia. I'm both Creative and logical and use both as great tools for understanding and problemsolving.

I'm calm, resilient and humorous. Tight deadlines and tough situations don't bring me down, I keep seeing the good in progressing.

Projects

A variety of projects done to help myself understand the tasks and assignments performed on the career path I have chosen to pursue.

I've chosen to pursue Actuarial science, risk management and quantitative finance, and as such I am spending my spare time working through projects in Risk management, claim-reserving, IT and Investment management. 

At the current point in time none of these are finished, but I will be spending the summer covering the first two projects in Risk management and Claims-reserving. 

First I will be finding the necessary data, than working my way through the process of analysing the data and performing the necessary operations to produce results. At the end I will be shaping the data and the results into a report and a webpage for explaining what I have done with the project. Along with that I will be making illustrations in photoshop and a powerpoint for easy access.

The projects in order will be,

  1. Risk management,
  2. Claims-reserving,
  3. AI and Machine learning
  4. Investment management.
