Because of my academic career, I’m interested in software engineering, human - computer interaction, user interfaces, graphics, databases, web applications and more.

As the final thesis for my Bachelor's degree, I implemented a garbage collector for a Java Virtual Machine (named Juice) targeted to embedded systems with real time requirements. As the final thesis for my Master's degree, I designed an access control mechanism for the Content Management System Joomla (www.joomla.org). It was successfully used for an e-learning solution.

I spent my last years discovering the Erlang language and getting addicted to it.

comment Why are words ending in “-um” and “-us” pluralized to end in “-a” and “-i”, respectively?
@Malvolio If you want to extend that to Italian, anyone who uses panini as a singular word should be shot.

The precise rules statement referred to the Latin plurals, not to the English ones :)
