Bio

My name is Andrei Ionut APOPEI, I’m 29 years old, and as my website suggests, I’m a geologist. What I love about #Geology is that it helps to find the “truth about Earth” and offers a constant feeling of discovery; looking at the simplest mineral on a molecular level is like describing a whole new world.

My interests in #Geology and informational techniques, applied to a wide range of problems in the field of geoscience, had finally been refined enough that I knew that one or two major topics are not enough for me. Currently, Mineralogy // Ore Geology // Vibrational spectrometry // GIS are the scientific fields that best fit my interests.

These domains share a strong link, allowing people to understand Earth’s evolution and for me, to share my knowledge and practical work to others (especially for my students).

Outside my < working hours >, I dedicate my free time to:

  • software development (Android, Java, C#);
  • game development;
  • web design + database (HTML5 + CSS3 & PHP + SQL);
  • photography (especially macro-) and
  • video editing + CGI (AE, Pr, Cinema 4D).

Funboy for electronics & proto-dev#:

  • Arduino small projects;
  • two CNC‘s;
  •  I made several nixie clocks for family and friends with available off-the-shelf components;
  • Pragotron clock (yeah! I have an obsession with old stuff).
