Romy Minko - A Research Assistant With A Great Academic Profile


Romy Minko is an highly qualified Research Assistant at Charter Keck Cramer in Melbourne, Australia. She holds a International Baccalaureate Diploma from Methodist Ladies College. She has done Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Melbourne. Along with this, she holds a Diploma in Mathematical Sciences with Specialization in Pure Mathematics from the same university.


Thereafter, in the urge to learn more she pursued MSc in Mathematics of Cryptography and Communications from Royal Holloway, University of London. During her Masters, she prepared a dissertation on 'Protocols for Blind Quantum Computation' in which she discussed the flaws in the security of a triple server protocol and assessed the spatial requirements for the implementation of Shor's Factorising Algorithm for N=15.


Additionally, Romy Minko has studied linguistics both at University and independently. She believes that her understanding of linguistics supplements and computer science is making her a fast learner in new programming languages. She has the comprehensive knowledge of topmost programming languages like Python, MatLab and LaTex. She is proficient in German and knows basic Spanish. She has academic skills in diverse areas which includes probability, calculus, quantum computation, public key cryptography, error correcting codes, elliptic curve cryptography, organic synthesis, and physical chemistry.


Romy Minko has always been keenly interested in cryptography, since she began her secondary school in Australia. She is a subscriber to Bill Schneider's newsletter and Crypto-Gram. She tries to stay abreast of the most recent developments in cryptography. Besides studies, she shares a great interest in sports as well as in music. She actively took part in various athletic activities like Triple jump, Sprints, Netball and Swimming. She plays piano, saxophone, guitar and shown her talent in Symphonic and Jazz bands at secondary school.


Romy Minko Has Performed Commendable Research And Volunteering Work


A Research Analyst at Charter Keck Cramer, Romy Minko is a resourceful professional with a good academic background. Based in Melbourne, Australia, she has years of professional, volunteer and research experience. Being a Research Analyst, she writes Python scripts to access, clean and compile data from the web, statistical analysis of data in Excel and Tableau. She also research various factors that are affecting the property market in Australia, such as affordability metrics and the emerging middle class in China and India.


In addition to this, Romy Minko has also attended a Conference at the University of Oxford- Celebrating Women Across the Mathematical Sciences. This conference gave her the opportunity to listen to several prominent mathematicians speak, as well as current PhD students. She also had the privilege to speak to Kristin Lauter of Microsoft Research who directed her towards the internship opportunities available to PhD students. This experience motivated her to continue her education into research.


Prior to this, in 2013, Romy Minko worked in a laboratory for her modules at University of Melbourne. This work was often conducted in a group and required a high level of analytical; thinking, as well as research for laboratory reports. She has also taught Mathematics for VCE and Chemistry for IB to two students which helped her in developing communication skills, particularly the ability to effectively explain and educate, proved to be an asset for her research work.


Romy Minko's has a volunteering experience with Don Bosco Centre at Phnom Penh in Cambodia for a week. She was involved in taking medication to poor families affected by AIDS and preparing relief packages for communities in poverty.
