I am a software engineer based in Timișoara, Romania. I hold a PhD in computer science and the CSSLP (Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional) certification. I currently teach at the Politehnica University of Timișoara.
I invented a dialect of the Forth programming language and implemented the first Forth compiler for the .NET platform. I reverse-engineered the communication protocol of some GPS trackers and wrote from scratch a vehicle tracking system that is currently used to track my two cars.
In the 90s I wrote several computer viruses in assembly language for my own research and I was the first to devise a technique to deter heuristic virus scanners.
