My work was related to the development of the monitoring software at the most extensive experiments. I'm responsible for handling and visualizing terabytes of data from the experiments subsystems.

Accomplished projects:
  • Core software: Team lead and developer at a project related to regression testing. This project helps control the organization’s development process, where thousands of people are involved in the software changes.
