Liviu holds a Bachelor degree in Computer Science and a Masters degree in IT Project Management. Before joining CERN he worked as a Software Engineer and Project Manager inside a dynamic Romanian IT start-up, while taking a position of Teacher Assistant with Politehnica University Bucharest. He started working at CERN in 2008 as a Software Engineer and System Administrator with the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Liviu joined CERN openlab in 2012 as a staff Software Engineer, taking an active role in the research and development efforts inside the Platform Competence Centre. CERN openlab is a unique public-private partnership that works to accelerate the development of cutting-edge ICT solutions for the worldwide LHC community and wider scientific research. In 2013 Liviu joined the CERN IT Procurement Team where he was responsible for reliable procurement of complex server and storage systems (thousands of compute servers and tens of petabytes of storage). Since 2015 he's part of the CERN Computer Security Team, leading the design and implementation of an integrated Security Operations Centre, built on top of Big Data technologies and able to cope with 5 TB of data / day.
