Yes, I am a doctor, but not that kind of doctor. I am the principal investigator of the Group for Applications and Services on Exascale Research Infrastructure (GASERI) and an assistant professor at University of Rijeka Faculty of Informatics and Digital Technologies (FIDTRi). Our scientific research involves molecular dynamics simulation using free and open-source software running on supercomputers, also known as high performance computers.
Previously, I have worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) Molecular Biomechanics (MBM) group, as a senior lecturer, a senior research and teaching assistant, and a research and teaching assistant at University of Rijeka 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.
