Hi, I’m Matei.

I’m pretty good at 

I’m also a computer science student at UCSD, Class of 2023, hailing from Romania. I’m also a budding software engineer with a lot of experience in infrastructure and DevOps. I do dabble in pretty much everything, from computer hardware to artificial intelligence, and like experimenting with UI/UX design.

Why shouldn’t I use social media?

Instagram’s tempting me, I guess. But hey, let’s be open-minded and find out what I really think about social media.

I Miss Procrastinating

It’s been a while since I’ve touched this blog. Let’s have a chat about why.

I Want My Digital Newspaper Back

A long conversation about how push notifications have ruined the ability for you to not be doomscrolling and how RSS feeds can help fix that.

Keeping Everything Together

How I spent a couple of weeks refining my tooling to the point everything's in one place. I used Emacs, of course.

What am I doing right now?

I’m ramping up my undergraduate research! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been in a lab, but I’ve missed it and am very willing to get back into it again.
