My name is Georg Tuparev. My office is my laptop (a MacBook Pro - to be more precise). I am the owner of two small companies, one mastering software projects, and the other - trying to fight climate change and pollution by means of tech and green ideas.
These are the technology rambles of a non-geeky tech nerd. Yes, this sounds like an oxymoron, but the reality is not too far away. I started my own chemistry lab at age of six, built my first telescope at age of nine, learn to program in Fortran when I was thirteen, wrote satellite control software before my adulthood, and hacked the police computer when I was just twenty-four. Later in my life I studied physics, maths, (molecular) biology, and chemistry. But most of my days (and nights) I spend writing computer programs.
My current programming projects are all around iOS, OSX, WebObjects, and micro-controllers. Objective-C is my friend for 25 years, but I am making my first steps in Swift. Java is unavoidable pain. And of course all other Web technologies are in my toolbox, but some of them are dustier than others.
Hobbies: renewable energy, chemistry, electronics, gardening, nature, traveling, sailing, opera and classical music...
Research: accessibility (devices and software for visually impaired and people with severe neuro-motoric diseases, and smart accessible homes), astronomy (specially robotic telescopes, and pulsars), muscular dystrophy, bionics, molecular pathways, parallel computing, bio-informatics, structure and composition of the soil, database technologies, Arduino, smart (micro) electric grid.
Fighting for: clean nature, electro-mobility, disability rights, dark skies (astronomers know what I mean), more democracy...
Political views: green, green, and did I mention it - green? And yes, for a while I was a co-chair of the Zelenite of Bulgaria, and I am deeply involved in the European green politics.
