Yes, I am a doctor, but not that kind of doctor.
I am working as an HPC application expert at Max Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF, formerly known as RZG). My research and development work is funded by BioExcel Center of Excellence for Computational Biomolecular Research.
I am serving as the principal investigator of the Group for Applications and Services on Exascale Research Infrastructure (GASERI) and working as an assistant professor (on leave) at University of Rijeka Faculty of Informatics and Digital Technologies (FIDIT). My group's research and development work is in the area of computational biochemistry and it is focused on molecular dynamics simulation using free and open-source software running on supercomputers, otherwise known as high performance computers.
I am offering consulting services for scientific software to academic and industrial subjects, including but not limited to development, testing, writing of documentation, porting, and deployment. Feel free to contact me for more information.
Previously, I was working as a postdoctoral researcher in Molecular Biomechanics (MBM) group at Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) under the mentorship of Prof. Dr. Frauke Graeter; as a senior lecturer, a senior research and teaching assistant; and as a research and teaching assistant at University of Rijeka (UniRi) Department of Informatics, and as an adjunct teaching assistant at Faculty of Engineering (RiTeh) Department of Computer Engineering.
I am rocking out science across disciplines and in a myriad of ways, igniting passion for science and technology in students and colleagues, and doing my part to make free and open-source software the default choice everywhere. I am convinced that most, if not all, of my work could just not exist without Linux and open-source development model.
