Resume of Marat Purnyn

I am a computer engineering student who is passionate about robotics and A.I. While Marat Purnyn is my official name, Peter is the name everyone calls me, including my family.

Professionally, I have a great deal of experience with Computer Vision, and Autonomous Navigation. I have been interested in robots since the 6th grade after I read the works of Isaac Asimov. I started to seriously participate in Robotics completions in High school. During my study in Drexel University I had a chance working in 3 great Robotics Laboratories in US, Japan and Germany. I believe that it is important to establish strong international relationships in science.

In my free time, I enjoy reading about the advancements of technology in various different fields. I also enjoy working on my own projects and participating in hackathons.

In the future, I hope to make the science fiction I read in my youth become reality.
