    Summary
    I am a Computer Scientist at heart, curious in exploring unexploited and alien terrain. I like to cross frontiers and connect people and industries from different fields with information technology. I believe that practical application should be the frontmost goal of all research and development. While I feel that new and unconventional approaches are the main drivers of innovation, they should be always pursued with the integration into proven and widespread technologies in mind. My main area of expertise is large-scale distributed systems. In that context, I helped designing and creating the Open Cloud Computing Interface family of specifications, which emerged from the lack of a royalty-free, open interface to modern As-a-Service environment and now gains momentum with implementations in major Cloud middleware stacks such as OpenNebula and OpenStack and uptake in platform frameworks such as CompatibleOne. This is complemented by over 30 publications that I published in peer-reviewed books and journals, and presented at respected scientific conferences. I have over ten years experience in software engineering, with a focus on distributed computing. In that context, I have architected and helped implementing e-Infrastructure systems for climate research and manufacturing. I can also look back on five years experience in consulting, mainly in the academic and governmental field. There, I specifically cater to the stress field between technological, regulatory, and standardisation challenges. Within the large-scale distributed systems context, my specialties are: Distributed Computing (HPC, Grid, and Cloud); Project Management (national and European scale); System Architecture and Operations; Consulting and Advisory. I also have strong skills in programming Java (10+ yrs) and Python (2 yrs).
