Well, my name is Aleksej Lebedev and I was born in Kazakhstan, which doesn't actually mean anything.
When I was 3 my parents moved to Russia (it was all USSR then) to the small town of Murom where I grew up. After finishing school I went to Moscow and studied at Moscow Aviation Institute for 5 years and a half.
Then I worked at different companies while teaching at MAI at the same time. In 2007 I received an offer from some people in the university to go to Malaysia to work there as a lecturer. At that point I already met my future wife in MAI campus (she was a student). I went to Malaysia and after couple of months she came there too. In order to get her visa we got married at the embassy of Russia in Kuala Lumpur.
In 2008 I got back to Moscow. In Malaysia I had a lot of free time and I got used to that very much. So when I returned to Moscow, I didn't apply for any real job. Istead I got involved into teaching at the university much more. But I didn't like the living on campus so in 2011 when I got chance to go to Malaysia once more I used that chance. But since there was no real plan (for me and my wife) to move there permanently and because she found a great job in Moscow at a big IT company just before I went to Kuala Lumpur, there was no way I could stay there for long time. So in July of 2012 I returned to Moscow again. But now I decided to find a regular job in IT. A friend from university advised me to apply to Yandex. I did and since that time on I work there.
Well, what else? I like unicycling and, since recently, juggling as well. Except that, I'm interested in computers, programming languages, theory of computation and so on but who cares :-)?
Let's see some photos of me and my family.
Here is my wife Tanya. Melakka, 2008.
Here are, from let to right, my sister, her daughter and my mom in Putrajaya, Malaysia, 2012.
That's the place where I lived in Malaysia, it's about 40 km south from Kuala Lumpur. On the photo: my nephews, my sister and my mom.
That's my dad at home in Murom in 2007.
And last but not least, me :-). Cameron Highlands, Malaysia, 2012.
