Education

Computer science combines the theoretical studies of algorithms and data structures, with the practical challenges of implementing them in hardware and software systems. Computer science plays a key role in the creation, development, implementation and evaluation of technology. This degree helped me to advance greatly in my career, and allowed me to become a reference in my field (technical translations) over the last 13 years.
