Evgenii Zheltonozhskii / Computer Science

About myself: I was born in Bryansk, Russia. At the age of 14 I've joined NAALE program and moved to Israel, then graduated high school and drafted to the army.
Since childhood I was interested in science and took part in Olympiads in math and physics. Later I got interested in computer science too.
I've started programming at the age of 14 and got fascinated with the opportunities it gave to me. I've worked as a freelancer during high school and army service and now I'm contributing to a couple of open source projects.
I am very curious and my interests include (but not limited to) quantum computing, astrophysics, concurrent programming, space exploration and AI.

Hobbies and other activities: chess, reading, programming, basketball, photography.

When did you start the program: Winter 2016.

Today (2021): I'm finishing my M.Sc. in Computer Science under supervision of Alex Bronstein, working on reducing supervision of deep neural networks, and starting my Ph.D. in theoretical Physics with Netanel Lindner, planning to work on topological phases of matter.
