I was born in 1981 in Tallinn, Estonia. When I was 3 years old, our family moved to Chernigov, Ukraine (that's where all the mistakes in my English are coming from).

Grad school seemed to be a natural choice, so I entered the Brown University in Providence RI.

Although I am a computer scientist, I'm not a complete nerd. At least, I'm trying not to be one. I am married and have a wonderful son, Antony. Besides traditional reading books, watching movies and playing videogames my hobbies are:
