Thoughts on resume structure

I am a soon to be Master in Applied Math (somewhere between july and august). I would like your thoughts on my resume structure.
I have chosen to include these paragraphs in my resume (targeted to quant jobs in London offices):
0. Name, adress, phone number as my headline (pretty standard)

1. Education: Facts about my bachelor and master programs but I don't mention which courses I have taken. I only mention my thesis

2. Work exprerience: 3-4 lines abut my job as student market risk analyst (NOT a quant position) at SEB in Sweden

3. Projects: Here I mention 4 major projects I have done at university and one outside. These are projects in Portfolio Optimization, a big project in a Machine Learning course(non financial), Developing a Trading Strategy (outside of university) and project on Volatility modelling. All projects focused on the coding part which i Mention

4. Technical skills: Here I list some of my technical skills like: Numerical PDE solving, statical modelling, theoretical finance knowledge etc and which programming languages I have worked with

It is one page exactly (that's why I could find space for listing some of my courses)

Furthermore I have these question:
  1. Should I include a picture at top?
  2. Is it important that everything fits to one page?
  3. Should I include a "Profile" paragraph at the beginning where I introduce myself and sum up my skills and my ambitions? I was thinking it is unnecessary because that is what a cover letter is for.
I am rather after your thoughts than the "truth" so please send as many comments as possible.

Thanks

  1. No.
  2. Yes. Declaration of Independence: 1 page. Magna Carta: 1 page. Your resume...
  3. I never read these profiles.
