About me

PhD Candidate in Astrophysics. I currently specialize in the modern deployment of applications in hybrid clouds. My interests focus on optimizing the cost-benefit of the use of cloud services. In my free time, I like to test latest technologies in my homelab and make coffee. In the scientific field, my research focuses on the study of stellar atmospheres in main sequence stars using radio observations and the development of solutions for high-performance computing.
