Where I'm from
- I got a BA in Mathematics and Computer Science at Oberlin College1, and spent a considerable amount of time as an undergraduate research assistant at the Carnegie Mellon University Human-Computer Interaction Institute2.
- I've interned at AT&T Research Labs, and at Facebook and Google as a software engineer.
- In 2001, I emigrated from Ukraine3 with my parents. I've moved westward: from Kyiv to Oxford, England, to Pittsburgh, to Seattle.
- Ask me what I think Oberlin and Seattle have in common!
- Ask me what I think Pittsburgh and Seattle have in common!
- Don't ask me what Kyiv and Seattle have in common, we would just end up whining about bad weather.
