Hi! I'm Sergey Kolchinskiy - a web developer, teaching assistant, volleyball coach, and engineer (ChE).
I completed the Web Development Immersive at General Assembly in January 2016. As part of the curriculum, I learned front-end and back-end web development across a number of languages and applied these skills to build full-stack projects for the course and for my own interest. I currently work as a freelance web developer and as a teaching assistant at General Assembly.
I assist in coaching the Men's and Women's volleyball teams at Cooper Union (where I played during my collegiate career). I primarily played the Opposite Hitter role, leading the Cooper Union Hawks in blocks during two championship runs from 2010-2012. I am still active in leagues around the city. I am available for private coaching sessions.
I received a Master's of Engineering from Cooper Union for Chemical Engineering. My work focused on optimization: I designed a hydrogen refueling station for minimal economic and safety impact on the community, I found the optimal operating conditions of an ice-generation system to minimize energy consumption, and I modernized the classic optimization problem of a nutritional diet (the 1930s solution involved a daily diet of navy beans and condensed milk).
I'm constantly learning and bettering myself. Here's a sample of what I'm reading - these are highly recommended if you like data and tech!
