I am a software engineer based in Timișoara, Romania. I currently hold the position of software architect for Oce Software, a Canon company.
I invented a dialect of the Forth programming language and implemented the first Forth compiler for the .NET platform. I reverse-engineered the communication protocol of some GPS trackers and wrote from scratch a vehicle tracking system that is currently used to track my two cars. I hold a PhD in computer science and I am the author of several papers and a book chapter.
In the 90s I wrote several computer viruses in assembly language for my own research and I was the first to devise a technique to deter heuristic virus scanners.
On the personal side, I am divorced and I have a lovely baby girl, my greatest achievement ever.
In short, a humble man.
