My background is as a programmer and researcher in Computational Fluid Dynamics. I have completed a PhD and a postdoctoral project in this field, both in Ireland. Despite my career's focus on science, I have always enjoyed translating: my first work was the translation into Romanian of Douglas N. Adams's novel The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I finished that translation out of pure passion for the book at around age 16, but never considered trying to publish it seriously enough. And, to my eternal chagrin, an official translation showed up on bookshelves a few years after I had finished my own!

Recently I've gone through a wholehearted career refocus towards translation. In 2020 I obtained a Translator Certificate from the Romanian Ministry of Culture's National Institute for Cultural Research and Training. I passed the respective national exams with high marks, in roughly the top 10% of the candidates of that semester. I am now enthusiastically working on not letting any challenges or opportunities get away!
