Young, dedicated, self-motivated and passionate software engineer. I started coding at an early age and implemented several software projects while still an undergraduate, activating as a freelancer on the website formerly known as RentACoder, where I was rewarded with the distinction “Top Coder”. I left freelancing for a permanent position, working from home as a software developer at Commercestream Corp. USA. Three years later, I enrolled in a Ph.D. and was soon offered a research engineer position at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, the result being several scientific papers presented at important software engineering conferences.
