Background

He has extensive understanding, and is a highly versatile user, of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, PHP5, MySQL, NoSQL MongoDB, Java, Scala, C#, C/C++, Bash, and Git version control. Using this knowledge, he's recently developed a modular PHP5 MVC framework from the ground up, featuring dynamic modules, an HTML5 templating system, and SQL and NoSQL support.

Currently, Razvan-Ioan is a lecturer in Computer Science and Cloud Computing and a PhD research student in cloud computing. His research is focused on the optimisation of cloud computing energy-efficiency management. He's also co-authored several peer-reviewed research papers and is interacting with relevant industries and research groups worldwide. His interests lie with web and software engineering and security.
