About Me

I am a passionate adherent towards using technology to improve day-to-day living condition for human societies. In particular I am interested in developing innovative software and security technologies.

From Technische Universität Berlin (Germany) and University of Trento (Italy), I obtained two joint master’s degree in computer science (2016), my final degree marks are 109/110. I also have a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Glasgow (UK) in Electronics and Electrical Engineering (2014), with first class honours, within the top 2% of my class.

Before joining Notre Dame’s PhD program in Computer Science, I worked as a software engineer at SoundCloud’s Berlin headquarter, developing and strengthening SoundCloud’s backend for user authentication and authorization experience. In between my studies, I have interned at Bosch Power Tools (Suffolk, UK) developing the electronics of robotic lawn movers; at Bosch Connected Device and Solutions GmbH (Baden-Württemberg, Germany) working on test automation for smart parking software application; at Fraunhofer Institute IPK Secure Identities research group (Berlin) working on applied machine learning in person re-identification and at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (Rheinland Pfalz, Germany) as a Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) RISE scholar doing research in control engineering.

I like new adventures, so far I have lived in eight cities in six countries spreading over three continents. I am also a big soccer fan and relentless supporter of TSG Hoffenheim and AC Milan.
