IT officer


I am currently employed at INF as IT Consultant and manager of CCC Labs (Centre for Communication and Computing).  
My main responsibilities at INF are to contribute and participate into different research projects as IT consultant and developer, but also to organize different workshops, tutorials where we investigate and use tools, platforms and programming languages that can be useful to students and researchers.

  • IT consultant and developer for research projects
  • Students tutorial for HTML 5, CSS3, PHP, Microbit, Touch Board - Bare conductive, 3D Printers, Stopmotion etc.
  • Self-service platforms for indexing, searching and visualizing data such as Solr, Indri, Elasticsearch and Tableau.

Furthermore, as manager of CCC Labs I like to follow and investigate the development of new IT technologies. Particularly, exploring the the cross section between IT and digital information areas in order to support research projects with the necessary knowledge and equip the CCC Labs with latest technologies.

At CCC labs our primary goal is to make the lab function as "playground" where students, researchers and staff can interact, explore can gain access to specialized IT equipment.

Fields of Interest

The evolvement of Web 2.0 and New Media are forcing data scientists towards data-driven improvements by collecting, processing, analyzing and visualizing data in order to get new and better insights across their organization.
Following the above trend and my interests in data analytics and visualization, I like to investigate new technologies and different self-service platforms that would allow organizations to accomplish different activities such as:
Information Retrieval, by obtaining information resources relevant to a piece of information need, using enterprise search engines (Apache Solr, ElasticSearch).
Organizing, monitoring and making data more accessible using ElasticSearch and Kibana.
Business Intelligence, Data Analytics, Visualizations and Interactive Dashboard using Tableau.
