I have been working on different research projects for the last four years, including a handwriting machine, integrated in the manufacturing pipeline of Wacom, cryptocurrency forecasts, and automated creation of AI solutions, integrated in the startup ScyNet. These projects were awarded at events such as ICYS 2018, Intel ISEF 2018 and 2019, and EUCYS 2019. This led me to be a twofold receiver of the annual distinction “John Atanasoff” by the Bulgarian president.

This experience also allowed me to become one of the youngest lecturers at my country’s Software University, where I organized the first Blockchain class. Of the 200 graduates, some even formed startups such as Hack bg. I most recently talked at the Arch Linux Conf about privacy-preserving OSS tools and at UNESCO in Paris about designing sustainable educational systems.
