Currently working as an algorithmist in a software company that produces medical equipment.


Due to the difference in the time zones in Magadan region, where I was born, and Sverdlovsk, where my gandparents lived, they had learned about me on the 5-th of December. The interesting fact is that that was the 25-th anniversary of their wedding. This makes me celebrate my birthday two days, on the 5-th and the 6-th.

In 1973 was a winner of the all-USSR mathematical competition in my grade, and in 1972 and 1974 got the second prise. I did not participate in the international competition, because I failed to obtain a letter of reference from the Young Communist League, therefore, I was denied international passport.
