22 years old student in Computer Sciences, I am particularly interested in theoretical Computer Sciences, Decentralized Systems and Artificial Intelligence. I always strive to learn more, tackle new challenges, and spend time to think about difficult problems until I can find my way around them. I find fulfilling to transmit my knowledge to others by teaching.
