The DNALC's multi-disciplinary staff has experience in elementary, secondary, and collegiate instruction; biochemistry and molecular biological research; computer programming; design, photography, fine arts, and interior design; science journalism; public relations and development; and opinion research.
I have an engineering degree from Technical "Gheorghe Asachi" University, Iasi, Romania where I studied computer science and engineering. I have been designing and writing software since 2000, primarily in Perl since I like its flexibility and powerful features. I enjoy creating online web applications because the impact is immediate and people have access to its features as soon as I publish them. You can also continuously improve and add features to your app. It is almost an organic experience.
Another dimension to my work is the focus on open source technologies. I love the feeling when your work is part of a project that brings together some of the best minds in an area. It is amazing to me howa virtual team gets to create and improve upon a project and make something very useful to the entire community.
