Vasyl Chomko

M.A.Sc. 2025

I am Vasyl Chomko, a Master of Applied Science student in Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo.

My fundamental interest lies in the synergy of mathematics and computer science, which was fostered during my undergraduate studies at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and has been a cornerstone of my academic path. My professional experience as a software developer and DevOps engineer led me to the fascinating field of computer vision and visual image processing. Coupled with my background as a professional athlete, this has naturally led me to focus on sports analytics, applying my technical skills to work on better capturing and processing key elements of athletes’ equipment for further game strategy analysis.

Outside of my academic and professional interests, I am actively exploring various smart devices and developing simple time-saving software applications, while also devoting some time to a personal passion – rowing.
