A tiny 2D game changed my life.
I created it in 2002. That was one of my very first experiences in computer coding. But that piece of code was encouraging enough to convince me to choose computer science as my major.
In , by defending A Network's Behavior Clustering Method for Intrusion Detection Systems, I became a computer engineer, officially! Not much later -in - the same story repeated again.

This time it was about A Remote Resource Discovery and Selection Mechanism for Computer Clusters Membership. After the master program, I decided to continue what I started with that little piece of code in 2002.
Now I'm here to bring it one step further. At the moment I'm working on my PhD thesis which is about going Toward Resilience in HPC: A Prototype to Analyze and Predict System Behavior. What comes next...? Stay tuned :)
