Preferred Gender Pronouns (PGPs): he/him

Collaborating at the Belle II experiment at KEK, where I contribute as deputy coordinator of the distributed computing system. My main duties are addressing the technical issues in distributed computing and end-user analysis, ensuring a sustainable and scalable operation. In addition, I contribute to the High Energy Physics software foundation (HSF), developing material for teaching the skills needed to produce high-quality software.
