Uppsala’s Master program is flexible and students are allowed to pick from a wide range of courses based on their own goals and interests. The study environment in Uppsala is superb, and it lives up to its internationally praised education standards.
I have taken courses to steer my career towards the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security and Human-Computer Interaction. Some of the courses I have completed include Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, Cryptology, Human Computer Interfaces, IT Systems and Human factors and Intelligent Interactive Systems among others.
During 2019 I participated on an exchange program at The University of Queensland in Australia. Most of courses I took were related to advance subjects in Computer Science and Journalism and Communication.
I am currently working on my Master Thesis. I expect to graduate on September 2020.

During my bachelor studies at Linnaeus University I learnt about the foundations of Computer Science and Software Engineering. The courses I took included Basic and Discreet Mathematics, Logic and Languages, Computer Networks, Computer Technology, Operating Systems, Software Architecture and Design, Software Testing and Documentation, Programming and Data Structures, Analysis of Algorithms, and Database Architecture among others.
I took a free standing course in Game Development during the summer of 2017, and several extracurricular courses that are not directly related to Computer Science (mostly language, literature and geology courses).
From August 2016 to August 2017 I participated on an exchange program with ISEP. During this program I lived and study in the United States for an entire year as an exchange student at California State University in the Bay Area. With the Bay Area and Silicon Valley being a world class hub of software development and technology, this experienced helped me better understand how the tech industry works from an American perspective.

Here I have compiled a short portfolio with some of the projects I have created. This short selection includes university assignments, events, and personal projects. The projects are divided into three different sections. You can have a better insight on my work and see more of my projects visiting my GitHub page
The software applications presented here were mostly coded in Java, Python or C#. This selection includes both command line interfaces as well as GUI applications. Notice that some of these projects are prototypes that still need some work to be completed.
Here are other projects that I feel are worth mentioning. Some are design projects that do not include any actual technical implementation. This section also includes ideas and prototypes, articles I have written, and even unfinished projects that I deemed interesting enough to mention.
Online Courses & Tutorials
I love to read and learn about new technologies, and I like to do different tutorials and online courses whenever I get the chance. My platforms of preference are edX and Coursera, but I use other portals too such as Hacker Rank, Code School and Codecademy among others. Here is a list of some of the online courses and tutorials I have completed.
Conferences, Workshops & other Events
I proactively participate in different workshops, conferences and events. I have attended various events around the world! I am always looking for new opportunities for networking and learning about the latest tech!
I am fluent in English and Spanish. My level of Italian is good but I need some practice! My Swedish level is 3C or A2 according to the European Language Council.
Here is a list of official language certificates I have obtained over the years.
Before Tech Industry
Before I discovered my passion for Computer Science and Software Engineering, I was working as a chef, cooking and bartending in various cities around the world. I have lived in Australia and New Zealand for a period of two years, and I have been living in Sweden for the past years of my life. I have also travelled around Asia, Africa, Oceania, Europe, North and Latin America, and in the Middle East. These experiences have granted me a great cultural background, as well as an holistic insight of the world we live in. This is an asset that helps me better understand, communicate and evolve in a multicultural working environment.
Here is a map of all the countries I have visited so far:
