Our Team

Andrii Zahorodnii

Before coming to MIT, I studied at the Ukrainian Physics and Mathematics Lyceum, and then at the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. In high school, I was into physics and mathematics olympiads. Now I’m a junior at MIT, and I’m working on my research in neuroscience and AI. Outside of academics, I organize TEDxMIT, compete on MIT’s Sport Pistol team, and work on various projects for Ukraine.

I'm originally from Kyiv, and prior to transferring to MIT, I studied at De Anza College in Bay Area, California, where I founded the Google Developers Club. I'm also a winer of national Jack Kent Cooke Scholarship. Currently, I'm pursuing a degree in computer science at MIT. In my free time, I enjoy coding and recently participated in MIT Web Lab. Currently, I'm studying computation structures and algorithms.
