About me

"Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." - Steve Jobs

I am a strong believer that practice makes people stronger and that everyone needs to work hard to achieve their goals - this is actually the motto I have studied by up to now. At the same time, however, I have always believed that things are always the way they should be and that no matter how hard we try, our fate is already written.

The moral? You have to care of things and not worry about them.

I am a hard worker and an enthusiastic learner. My thirst for knowledge has led me to always want to achieve more, though being humble and realistic at the same time. I'm a results-focused and determined person, with a strong work ethic, passionate about making a difference through learning and exchanging knowledge with others. I'm a high cognitive-skill person, with good organizational skills, a natural and willing ability for planning and collaborating. I believe that teamwork is one of the most effective way to gain knowledge and to improve open-mindedness, as well as critical thinking and problem solving skills. Even though meeting people who have higher knowledge than you do can be challenging and a bit scary, I have always been a fan of going beyond my confort zone. On top of that, I am extremely empathic - which can be good and bad at the same time.
At first sight I can seem an introvert, but as soon as I allow myself to be vulnerable, I can be cool, funny and a great friend :)

Skills and Interests

I have an attitude and a tendency to always question "why" or "how". This behavior has led me to not settle for the easiest solution, to constantly search for reliable reasons, and most importantly to try to be broad-minded. Accordingly to this attitude I think a Ph.D. work is for me. I am very interested in the field of software engineering, where some of the topics I am fascinated about are program comprehension and evolution of software systems, as well as software visualization.

During the BSc and the MSc I had the chance to start learning some programming languages, such as C, Java, HTML/CSS, Javascript, Python, LaTex and to learn how to use technologies, such as Git, GitHub and GitLab. The learning process is a long one though, so I still have a lot to learn.
During my university years, I was also able to develop some soft skills, such as effective communication, problem solving and adaptability.

Aside from anything to do with technology, I love any form of art - especially music. Music recharges me, but so does connecting with nature, reading, and spending time with family and friends. I enjoy playing sports and I am committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Also, I like cooking and most importantly sharing the food with the people I love.
I am emotionally attached to traditions, but at the same time I like to be part of the progress. I am also fascinated by philosophy and neuroscience.
