Hi! I'm Sergey Kolchinskiy - a web developer working as a Front End Engineer at Pumpkin Petcare. In the past, I've worked as an engineer for Delivery.com, a web development workshop instructor for General Assembly, and volleyball coach at The Cooper Union. In a past life, I studied Chemical Engineering at Cooper Union, where I was first exposed to programming for aid in deriving mathematical solutions to complex systems.
I completed the Web Development Immersive at General Assembly in January 2016, leading to a fulfilling career in front end development and academia that has involved sponsoring hackathons (e.g. TechCrunch), assisting in the tech portion of new company acquisitions, and streamlining engineering and hiring processes.
I coached the Men's and Women's volleyball teams at Cooper Union. During my college career at Cooper, I specialized as the Opposite Hitter, leading the Cooper Union Hawks in blocks during two championship runs from 2010-2012. I am still active in leagues around the city.
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!
