About Me

I am a Computer Science Graduate Student at the SUNY Buffalo University, majoring in Software and Information Systems. I really like mathematics. I treat and solve almost all the challenges I face like mathematical problems. Math is the reason why I developed a strong interest in computer science. I love coding! I think it is a great combination and expression of mathematics and problem solving. I am a polyglot and meticulously crafty when it comes to work. Being a self-motivated learner, I try to learn new technologies, programming languages, concepts whenever possible.
