Samuel Soutullo Sobral

I am Samuel Soutullo Sobral, a researcher in High-Performance Computing (HPC). From a young age, I was always drawn to the world of computers and programming. This led me to study a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering and subsequently, a Master's in Game Design and Technology in Sweden.

Throughout my career, I have gained experience in various areas, such as video game development, mobile app development, and web app development. One of my most notable projects was Blitter, an Android app with more than 10,000 downloads. After working for two years as an Android developer, I discovered that my true calling was in academia, which led me to start a PhD in Information Technology Research at the University of Santiago de Compostela in October 2023.

I consider myself a person with a strong desire to learn and share knowledge. During my degree, I organized and taught a JavaFX course, and now, I am even more committed to education and research. I see myself in the future working as a university professor and researcher, contributing to the advancement of our understanding of technology and its applications.

My journey has been recognized with several awards, such as the best idea at Android Study Jams 2016, the award for one of the three best records in the Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering, and one of the 10 postgraduate scholarships abroad from the Barrié Foundation.
