I am a huge programming fan. I love it since I was 12 years old or so! Professionally I have experience as a fullstack software engineer and backend software engineer (this is where I am more productive). Academically I have worked on operations research using hybrid exact methods, on heuristic optimization and AI and also with bioinformatics (mostly protein structure prediction).
On my free time I like to code games, do creative coding, or anything else that I find interesting, such as emulators, automated puzzle solving or something to help me with a problem.
Outside of the tech world there are multiple things that I enjoy. I am a drummer and a painter. I like to go hiking, trekking and camping and rencently I started bouldering / climbing as well. I also do ceramics, origami, and rencetly I have been growing into sailing.
