About Me
Andrey Akhmetov

As of 2020, I am a software engineer at Google NYC on a Storage Infrastructure EngProd team, where I help develop custom development and benchmark tools for our partner teams, allowing them to continue to scale and improve the systems powering Google's storage stack. I previously interned with Google in the summers of 2018 and 2019. I am also concurrently pursuing a Masters' Degree in Electrical Engineering at The Cooper Union, which I previously attended as an undergraduate student.

I received my Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Cooper in Spring of 2020. I had a wide academic focus, ranging from analog electronics to lower-level software and computer engineering. My coursework focused on analog integrated circuit design, telecommunications theory, and signal processing. As an undergrad, I took graduate-level courses in machine learning, computer architecture, cybersecurity, NLP, computer graphics, and custom hardware design for DSP applications.

I was also a TA for the analog chip design course, helping to run the course remotely in response to public health circumstances, while working to ensure that students had the resources necessary to learn and succeed, even when learning from home.

Before interning at Google, I was an electrical engineering intern at Totem Power where I designed power electronics including energy storage systems. I was also concurrently a student researcher at Cooper Union's Complex Fluid Physics and Engineering (CoFPhE) lab, where I designed electronic control systems and circuitry for autonomous model boats operating in complex fluid flows.

Outside of classes, I worked with the Create@Cooper organization, which organizes the HackCooper hackathon. In order to facilitate our Fall 2019 hackathon, I acted as a team lead for a group of five students working on software tailored to our event's needs such as registration, judging, and day-of communication. I am also currently an active officer of the Cooper Union Rock Climbing club, where I am helping to organize events and outings.

I also served as the electronics design lead for the Cooper Union Hyperloop team during its first season. After our 2018 competition season concluded, I worked with Cooper Union's administration to ensure an orderly shutdown of the club's activities after concluding that the team's goals could not be feasibly attained without compromising safety.

My personal hobbies include various personal projects, rock climbing (boulder+toprope+indoor lead), and hiking. I also enjoy drinking a variety of teas—my current favorite is the Ginger Blueberry blend from The Whistling Kettle.
