Hello, I am a Ukrainian-American student pursuing an undergraduate degree in Physics and Mathematics. Ever since I was a child, I enjoyed electronics and software, which has shaped where my passions are and how I spend lots of my free time. My academic interest in Physics started in Middle School, stemming from wanting to know how things work at a deeper level. This passion for wanting to know how things work has pushed my programming to primarily focus on embedded/ bare-metal environments. In these environments, I don't need to focus on libraries but I can make the tools I need which I find enjoyable and have contributed significantly to my knowledge of these systems.
