I’m truly passionate about implementing synergies to build new things. I started as a C/C++ and Java developer then some years of scientific research. I was Associated Professor at the Babeș-Bolyai University, Romania, where I received my Ph.D. in 2010. I worked within the AVALON team during doctoral and postdoctoral internships (INRIA, ENS-Lyon, France). I participated in the development and validation of the INRIA's MapReduce implementation for Volunteer Computing environments. I developed an innovative user-satisfaction and multi-criteria scheduler for hybrid distributed computing infrastructures. I have proudly participated in building the iExec project since its early beginning and I am a passionate iExec technology pioneer. In the recent years I acquired expertise in IT project management and started a business. Since 2016 I got in touch with cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies, using now Ethereum. Now I put all my energy and experience into building the SynergyCrowds platform, side by side with other sygons.
