Which film is a must-see for you?
Money Monster or Liberty Stands Still. They’re both great films 🎬 because they don’t just rely on special effects; rather they build up tension through dialogue and plot. There’s a strong storyline, not just random explosions intended to distract the audience.
Which superpower would you like to have?
Just one? The power to stop ⏰ time! Other superpowers all come with certain disadvantages.
If you were a city, which would you be and why?
I think I’d be Tokyo. It’s a beautiful city 🌆 with a huge population. Having grown up in a big city, I can’t imagine living in a small town, despite the masses of people. In Tokyo, everything runs smoothly. Everything is civilized and orderly. The people there are more considerate of one another in public – that’s Japanese culture.
What would you do if you didn’t have to work for a living?
I would write. I’m always coming up with new ideas for books 📚 or comics. I used to write short stories, but nowadays I don’t have enough time to finish them and write them down. Yes, I’d definitely write for fun.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I love numbers, and have done since 🏫 school. GAMOMAT was one of the few companies in Berlin looking for mathematicians to really apply maths. It’s very rare to find a true mathematician who uses maths in their work. Finding formulas, figuring something out, calculating combinations, stochastic processes, discrete mathematics… Lots of companies recruiting for mathematicians really just want a basic programmer or someone to input numbers into Excel spreadsheets.
