Computing and IT

Understanding and programming computers always inspired me ever since I first used one; the idea of designing the behaviour and interaction of a machine is fascinating. Computers and programming is fun.

Biography

Being born to a university professor, I inherited the passion for teaching and research. First memories of computers are of a machine that plays games; I guess the curiosity about how this machine works came naturally. That curiosity led me to pursue computing at higher education and gave me the opportunity to work on some amazing projects, including working with softwares used by physicists at CERN.
