Balint Tillman


I have received my B.Sc. degree in Business Information Technology from Corvinus University of Budapest (2012) and my M.Sc. degree in Software Development and Technology from IT University of Copenhagen (2014). I worked as an intern during my studies at Corvinno Technology Transfer (Budapest) and I served as a teaching assistant for algorithm classes at ITU (Denmark). Currently I am a Ph.D. student in the Networked Systems at UC Irvine working with professor Athina Markopoulou.
