I’m a passionate lifelong learner, constantly improving my skills as engineer, data scientist and individual at first glance. I’ve always been strongly involved in MOOC programs. I not only choose courses related to my research and professional fields, but even on new innovative subjects. This way, I can use new competences in existing projects, involving lateral thinking and problem solving in my business innovation tasks.


That is, I’m really motivated into problem solving, especially in tasks which involves the use of large masses of data of high complexity, statistics, machine learning, network analysis. I always use to pair my strong technical and programming skills (in both general purpose and data oriented languages) with a big dose of creativity coming from my graphic designer past experiences and game design duties at 9th Circle Games. I was involved and so very confident in Open Innovation initiatives and, as a personal attitude, I’m a strong supporter of open source software, especially open analytics applications, which I discuss on my professional blog and I use in many of my research duties. But I’m not passionate about platform, algorithms or technologies themselves: I prefer to concentrate on business needs and opportunities.


As a project manager, I consider myself a highly motivating team leader. I strongly discourage repetitive tasks, abuse of emails and ticket systems, as traditional reporting. I embraced the Agile manifesto for all my projects and I’m supportive and open-minded to innovative ideas, solutions and standards.


My personal interests vary from photography, cooking, history of music and the internet of things.
