Ashkan Norouzi-Fard

Bachlor Student in Computer Engineering at Sharif University of Technology


I was born in Tehran in 1991, ever since I've lived in Iran. In 2005 I went to Allame TabaTabiee High School and in 2007 while studying at the highschool I participated in Olympiad in Informatics nationwide competition, and I managed to win the Silver medal of the National Olympiads abbreviated to INOI. I entered Sharif University of Technology in 2009. At present I'm studing Softwar Engineering.
