Current situation
I'm currently in Skopje working with acad. Ljupco KocarevI had an 8-months internship at IBM Research (T.J. Watson, NY, USA) where I worked in the Distributed Digital Media Infrastructure group managed by Dr. Chai Wah WuI'm joining the Macro Connections group at MIT Media Lab this fall for postgraduate studies.

Research Interests

1. in my spare time I'm working on a library of data structures for storing large graphs written in Go programming language. The library offers transparent control of memory layout and usage. It is only used internally at MASA, but I expect to publish it by March. (see GoGraph)
