Take care and have fun!

Research + Coursework

My research interests include: Mobile Biomedical Device, Image Processing, Deep Learning in Optics.
During undergraduate classes at Nazarbayev University, I used to keep records of courseworks. If you are an interested one, please proceed with Academia.edu to find out more. Here is the link to Google Scholar


  1. MATLAB-Cody
    Solving programming problems is a good way to sharpen coding skills. Days back, I challenged to solve problems of basic and medium level in MATLAB. On this page, you can find the list of problems and corresponding solutions.

  2. awesome-classics
    I love books, especially classics. If you are a reader in Russian language, you may find this repo useful. Here is the small collection of descriptions and notes made from the books that I read, so you can check it out above.


In my free time some days earlier, I also was playing with some writing and poetry in Kazakh and Russian languages. Consequently, this turned out into small self-published ebooks. You can view them for free in Google Books:
