Hey everyone! Hope you are having a good coding spree,

You might not remember me but I was very active here about 5 years ago. I've recently been invited to interview by Shayan who was briefly one of my brightest students and I'm happy to be interviewed by him soon. If you want me to answer any questions in the interview, feel free to comment below or ask on Shayan's Discord Channel. The interview will be available in Shayan's Youtube Channel.

I'll give you a little bit of background about myself:

  • I was born and raised in Iran.
  • I participated in various competitions, including IOI, ICPC. Got a gold medal at IOI 2016 and funnily enough afterwards got a silver medal at IOI 2017.
  • After high school, inspired by one of my close friends who got into MIT, I decided to do my bachelor's degree outside Iran and I eventually ended up getting a full scholarship to and attending University of Waterloo.
  • In UWaterloo, I participated in the co-op program which alternates between study terms and "work" terms where you do an internship. I interned as a Software Engineer at Snowflake and Citadel Securities, and as a Quant Researcher at Hudson River Trading.
  • I'm currently working as a Quantitative Researcher in Radix Trading which is a quantitative trading firm.

Excited to be doing this interview!
