About the author
Hello and welcome to my site. My name is Robert Puskas and you happened to stumble upon my own website. Here you will find information about my profession, hobbies and other general interests. To get the general idea about me, I encourage you to read the following short introduction. If you’d like to get more detail, please visit other parts of my website as well.
Thank you for visiting, thank you for reading, please enjoy this corner of the Internet.
During my almost decade long work in academic research I managed to acquire high levels of proficiency in materials science by studying different types of nanomaterials. My studies allowed me to learn a great deal about high precision instruments, project planning, data interpretation and visualization, research publishing and presentation, team work and leadership, and more, all of which culminated in my PhD work titled “Carbon Nanostructures With Different Dimensionality – From Synthesis To Applications” and over twenty publications.
Since the completion of my PhD studies, I started to familiarize myself with industrial methods and approaches by designing several process technology equipment using CAD software to reduce run and maintenance costs. I’m also responsible for researching new ways to process materials and thus expand company portfolio and as such possible clients. One of the notable results of my efforts was a major overhaul of a reprocessing facility, which resulted in significant reductions in running costs due to superior efficiency and smaller workforce requirements. Several other smaller, but similar improvements were also made company-wide.
I’m also rather passionate about IT, and has been for well over a decade now, which allowed me to aquire a set of skills, that made me the practicing systems administrator at the university department I worked at during my PhD years. My deep interest in IT didn’t diminish over the years, but instead it became even stronger, which drove me to start to learn C++ programming on a regular basis. I have already read several thousand pages of books and did several online courses on programming, so hopefully I’ll be able to go professional with my hobby soon.
When I still have some time left or need a bit of variation in my studies, I learn languages, where my current subject of study is German. I managed to improve it quite considerably over the last couple of years, but admittedly, there is still some room for improvement. My current goal is to reach a level of proficiency similar to what I have with English and Russian right now.
Apart from all the learning and work I also enjoy to play classical guitar pieces or do a bit of photography, but because of serious time constraints I haven’t been able to practice these as of late, but I’m not giving up hope…
