    I am Software Engineer working for ARM as part of the Android team. In the past few years I have been involved on a couple of Android subsystems from Ashmem and Binder to libc, Dalvik and ART. I have been actively involved in the ARM64 Android bootstrap and previously I have been maintaining the ARM Versatile Express Android ports.

    At roots I have an electronics background, graduated the Polytechnic University of Bucharest and a master at Bristol University.

    Ask me about:

    • ARM
    • Binder
    • Bionic
    • Art
    • Android
    • OpenCV (though a bit rusty now)

    You can check my latest patches here:
