About Me

Welcome to my little corner of the web! My name is Masoud Abkenar, or as it’s written in the Persian script, مسعود آبکنار. I was born and grew up in Iran, and since 2010 I am living in Germany.

I am interested in science, computers, and the intersection between technology, human rights, and social structures. I hold a PhD degree in computational biophysics, do a wide variety of software development work, and am an avid enthusiast and contributer to the Free software movement.

Up to now, I have been working as a scientific researcher in different universities and research institutes in Germany. I am always passionate to find new opportunities in the fields of physics, all aspects of software development lifecycle, and initiatives for improving public literacy about scientific and technological matters.

If you are interested in working together, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
