Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin (Russian: Сергей Михайлович Брин; born August 21, 1973) is an American computer scientist and Internet entrepreneur who, with Larry Page, co-founded Google, one of the most profitable Internet companies.[4] As of 2013, his personal wealth was estimated to be $22.8billion.[2] Together, Brin and Page own about 16 percent of the company.

Brin immigrated to the United States with his family from the Soviet Union at the age of six. He earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland, following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps by studying mathematics, as well as computer science. After graduation, he moved to Stanford University to acquire a Ph.D. in computer science. There he met Larry Page, with whom he later became friends. They crammed their dormitory room with inexpensive computers and applied Brin’s data mining system to build a superior search engine. The program became popular at Stanford and they suspended their PhD studies to start up Google in a rented garage.

The Economist newspaper referred to Brin as an “Enlightenment Man“, and someone who believes that “knowledge is always good, and certainly always better than ignorance”, a philosophy that is summed up by Google’s motto “Organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”[5][6] and “Don’t be evil“.

Education in the United States

Brin attended grade school at Paint Branch Montessori School in Adelphi, Maryland, but he received further education at home; his father, a professor in the department of mathematics at the University of Maryland, encouraged him to learn mathematics and his family helped him retain his Russian-language skills. In September 1990 Brin enrolled in the University of Maryland to study computer science and mathematics, where he received his Bachelor of Science in May 1993 with honors.[14]

    Sergey and Google co-founder Larry Page both studied in Stanford University (Applied Math thesis on Google search algorithm) under the supervision of Prof Tony Chan, now the President of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. We are proud that Google was inspired by an Asian.

    Testimony: searching Tony Chan will always find Prof Tony Chan first in the Google list. He knows the best secret of how Google Optimal Search Engine (OSE) works.
