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.
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.
