About Me
Andrey Akhmetov

I am an undergraduate student at The Cooper Union in the Electrical Engineering Class of 2020, with a focus ranging from analog electronics to lower-level software and computer engineering. My coursework includes undergraduate chip design (VLSI), analog circuit engineering, signal processing, as well as graduate-level courses in machine learning, computer architecture, and computer graphics.

In 2020, I'll be joining Google's New York City office on the Cloud Storage EngProd team, where I interned in summer 2019. Prior to this, I was an intern on the DoubleClick advertising EngProd team.

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, hiking, and rock climbing.
