I am a Romanian researcher and programmer, interested in semantics, linked and/or open data, personal data, open source and teaching. I work as a research fellow in the Web and Internet Science Research Group in the University of Southampton, in Southampton, UK. Before coming here, I completed my PhD in DERI, NUI Galway, in Galway, Ireland. Read more about my projects, and see the list of my publications and a short bio. I love to teach [ programming / math / anything else I might know well enough ]. I also love open source and use it most of the time, doing my best to introduce as many people to it as possible (and thus combine teaching and OSS). I enjoy running, and tracking different things about myself, mostly so that I can get nice graphs and stats.
