I am a final year graduate student pursuing my Engineer's Degree in computer systems and networks from IMT Atlantique in France. I am passionate about all aspects of computer science especially programming and system design. Besides, I'm great at knowing the right algorithm for a problems because I read computer science literature and practice my problem solving skills constantly. Most importantly, I love working with people to do things bigger than I could accomplish alone. I am motivated by complex challenges and I dream to have my effort will contribute to the technologies that innovate our future.

I enjoy my time both in indoor and outdoor activites. During the winter, I am an avid skiier ski in the alps with my friends. During the warmer seasons here in Brittany, I enjoy moutain hiking and jogging. Especially, I like to hangout with my friends in the downtown of Brest.

When indoors, I play numerous video games from Mario to Nathan Drake. And I also love and enjoy cooking and sharing them with my friends, the plate that I am good at includes from local Brittany Crêpes to specialties of uygur.
