I’m a computer scientist / creative from Romania based in South-East London. I have a computer engineering master’s from Imperial College, and am currently pursuing a PhD in complex systems at Imperial’s Centre for Complexity Science. On the side I work on SnowWall, a privacy-oriented networking tool for Windows, and harangue whoever would listen about security and privacy.

My technical interests are in information theory, cryptography, functional programming, decentralised systems, and ethical artificial intelligence. Sometimes I also play with electronics (I’m a ham radio enthusiast) and I always wear my tin foil hat. My tools of the trade are a Purism laptop, a Sony A7S and a Banana Phone.

When I’m not staring into a computer screen, I take photographs, I read and I write. I also enjoy discussing literature and previously I ran a storytelling workshop in Bath. Things I love to read are novels and stories, philosophy of mind, and neuroscience. Things I love to listen to and look at are usually psychedelic, fractalicious and surreal. I prefer Koch to the Churchlands, Dali to Picasso, Dostoievski to Dickens.
