Furthermore, all necessary skills and knowledge I gained by studying at German-Russian Institute of Advanced Technologies (GRIAT) under the Communications and Signal Processing program assisted in addressing different issues for sure.
Honestly speaking, my win was a huge surprise but rather pleasant one. I didn’t believe it at first, I thought it was a prank. Anyway, I haven’t decided yet what to do with the prize.”, – said Daniil Chirkov.
