Dr Robert Görke
After his civilian service as a floater in the operating theatre of Radolfzell Hospital, Dr Robert Görke first studied technomathematics in Karlsruhe. During this time he also completed a Diploma of Science in Auckland (NZ), which was his introduction to network analysis and algorithms. He then went on to complete a PhD in Computer Science in this area at KIT on the topic of graph clustering. Data-driven modelling and optimisation continued to accompany him after joining d-fine in 2012, through areas such as market price analysis, asset-liability management, trading portfolios and credit risk models. He then moved on to the OR in 2017, when he began to contribute the facets of analytical, quantitative and technological consulting work in the Pharma & Healthcare sector at d-fine. Dr Görke has been head of this area at d-fine since 2021.
