Skilled and motivated software engineer with 2+ years of industry experience. I have a PhD in Organic Synthesis and have led a successful academic career until I found my true passion: software development. Learned to code on my own and fell in love with making things work and getting things done. My current specialties include full stack web development, CI/CD pipelines, automated testing and containerization. Love to built things and solve problems. Always learning something new.
