My name is Natalia Salazar. I am an actuary and a quantitative finance specialist currently working in the InsuraceTech industry. Besides, I have always been passionate about academia. My main topic of research is mortality estimations and projections within the life insurance business. I am driven by a vast curiosity to investigate, learn, and contribute to topics immediate to my work and beyond. I was born in Colombia, but I have lived in The Netherlands, Spain, and currently in Germany. I am passionate about experiencing new places and cultures, as well as interacting with new people.
