Academic Experience

Lucian is a Master's Student at Politehnica University of Bucharest. He got his Bachelor in Computer Science from the same university. His Bachelor's Thesis is called "Case Study of Evaluating Porting Costs: Porting IxOS on ARM Boards" that is avaliable here. Now he's researching in the area of compiler optimizations and undefined behavior. More specifically, he tries to understand the performance impact of compiler optimizations that are based on undefined behavior. You can find the progress here.
