Computer Compression & Stacking

I am a computer scientist, a wannabe astronomer, and a handyman. I work with my mind for living, governed by science and logic, and I do enjoy working with my hands for fun.

As a computer scientist, I understand what it means to apply the principles of software engineering and mathematical analysis to do requirements, design, development, testing, and maintenance of software systems. For nearly 30 (thirty) years, I have been acquiring knowledge of computer science, via studying and teaching the theoretical foundation of computer systems and via practicing their implementation. My long industrial work experience helped me in using a variety of languages and techniques to develop many software applications and frameworks.

Currently, I am working as a Senior Research Fellow at Lero the Irish Software Research Center, at University of Limerick, Ireland where I have led and am currently leading various important projects, including projects with ESA that emphasised the research and development of intelligent systems capable of self-adaptation along with a project that aimed the R&D of an LLVM backend for the LEON family of processors.

Among my most proud achievements are my two U.S. NASA patents on Method of Improving System Performance and Survivability through Changing Function (quoted by NewScientist) and on Power Provision Based on Self-Sacrificing Craft and my book on Autonomy Requirements Engineering for Space Missions.
