Azim Ospanov, Azim

Responsible for: 2/F, Maurice R. Greenberg Building

Dept/Year: Computer Science & Engineering, PhD Year 1

 

Hey there, everyone! I’m Azim, and I’m absolutely stoked to introduce myself to the incredible Morningside community. I’m a first-year PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering. I enjoy many things, including digital art, video games and crime fiction. Usually, I spend time visualising my favourite characters on canvas or mixing and merging different styles. I spend (too much) time playing competitive video games. Fun fact, I used to play “Hearthstone” competitively and even had some success in Kazakhstan e-sports! Morningside is an extraordinary place for me, and I am absolutely stoked to serve such a fantastic community! If you have any ideas or questions or simply want to chat about anything, I’m all ears!

Hi all! My name is Tim and I am from Hong Kong. I graduated with double majors in Hong Kong studies and journalism from HKU.

I also enjoy reading, cooking, and doing Crossfit. If you see a 193cm tall person dashing around the campus, that is probably me - so say hi!

Welcome to friends from all around the globe! I hope you all will find Morningside a nice place to reside, to learn and to make friends. My name is Christina. I am happy to be your resident tutor and I am so excited to meet you all. As a local student, I seize every opportunity to reach out to the world in my university life. I have been a volunteer in Turkey and an intern at a law firm in the United States. It is thrilling to be exposed to cultural diversity. And I am so lucky that every person that I met during the journey has been so inspiring to me. I think it would be great if I could do so in return to you all. Besides travelling, I also love to do sports like swimming, hiking and especially scuba diving. It is always amazing to be surrounded by the chill seawater and to explore in the blue world. It would be my pleasure to help when you are in need. Please don’t hesitate to come over and share your stories. Let’s be an inspiration for each other and I wish you a fruitful life in University.
