Hey, I am Mark, a software engineer in Singapore. I recently graduated with a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from New York University Abu Dhabi and I currently work as a software engineer at Goldman Sachs.

I have been studying and working around the world for the past 9 years. Born in Novouralsk, a small town in the Russian Urals, I started my journey at THINK Global School, the world's first traveling high school. My classmates and I studied in 12 countries in 12 trimesters, met incredible people from all over the world, got through the IB together, and had an absolute blast.

That amazing experience led me to NYU Abu Dhabi, where, amongst other things, I worked on a digital wallet startup, competed in a few triathlons and led HackAD, our largest tech club.

Between academic years I worked at Google Summer of Code on an open source system to compute energy-optimal routes for electric vehicles, and at Yandex, a Russian Internet company, implementing new features for a Chromium-based web browser. I also did some front-end and product work at Datary, a startup in Madrid, and at Communitech, a really cool innovation hub in Waterloo, Canada.

I am a quick learner who absorbs new ideas and loves tackling stretch projects. Technology fascinates me, and I am always on the lookout for ways for it to bring value to the society and to help others.

You can read more about my experiences on LinkedIn and find out about the behind-the-scenes on my Instagram. I recently started a blog on Medium, which I hope to update more frequently. The best way to reach me is via [email protected] – I'll reply within 24 hours.
