    I have graduated from two programs of study at „Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iasi, Romania, so I have obtained the Bachelor Degree in Economics and also in Law. I also finished the Master "Banks and Financial Markets" at the same university. My average score for bachelor and masters was around 97 points out of 100. Currently I am a PhD Student, part of a cotutelle program between “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iasi and Université d’Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand, France. Throughout the years of study, I gained professional experience in both banking and legal field. I have constantly been interested in the scientific research activity, so I have been participated in various national and international scientific competitions. During the past three years, I’ve won the 1st prize in the Scientific Communication Session, section Finance and Financial Institutions, at a local level but also at a national level. For the entire academic activity, I received an Award of Excellence from Groupe Société Générale, for outstanding academic performance. The skills that I have and believe to be highly relevant include the following: analytical thinking, team worker, staying calm under pressure, interested in new ideas and self-development, highly responsible, punctual, efficient, balanced and fair. Moreover, I have experience in analysing financial data and article writing. I started with statistical data analysis since my second year of Bachelor and since then I kept improving myself, by this making reference to a series of awards I won at a national and international level. Besides, I have the ability to analyse time series in different statistical programs Stata, EViews, SPSS (regression-OLS, GLS, GMM; VAR; forecasting; error correction etc.). I am also an advanced user of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) and I also have basic knowledge of graphic, audio and video applications. Due to my international exposure, I have improved my foreign language skills and currently I speak English (C1), French (B2) and Spanish (A2). I conclude by saying that the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty their dreams, so I think that the interest in professional growth, openness to novelty and accountability are key elements in coordinating the activity initiated.  less
