Hey! My name is Stepan Zharkov, but I always go by Styopa. I am a joint computer science masters and math undergraduate student at Stanford. My experience lies primarily in algorithms, but I'm also interested in cryptography. I also care about teaching, writing, and education in general.

Outside of academics, I run the Stanford Tango Club, design and sew clothes, draw portraits, and go backpacking. If you see me in the wild, I will most likely be wearing roller skates and listening to music. I have enough programming skills to make any project I want, such as this website. the easter eggs on this site.

A photo of me can be found here. My email is styopa[at]stanford[dot]edu. Never hesitate to email me, look at my GitHub projects, connect with me on LinkedIn, or check out my Spotify playlists:
