Experience and Awards

🔬 Summer Research School

Attended the prestigious Summer Research School in Bulgaria. There, a group of forty Bulgarian and international students pursue a research topic of their choice for three weeks, ultimately developing a formal paper and defending their findings with a presentation. Under the guidance of Ms. Pressiana Marinova, I worked on an inquiry project on probablistic primality testing and the analysis of a probablistic AKS variant. My paper and findings can be found here and here.
