    Career to date



    ·         January 1996 - present: TXT e-Solutions S.p.A.


    In this period I have taken care of the projects in respect of both the technical and the management side, including:

    ·         Analysing  and drafting specifications;

    ·         Identifying the best solution in contexts posed by technical constraints;

    ·         Designing system architectures through architectural patterns;

    ·         Evaluating design detail choices;

    ·         Keeping the project development under constant control;

    ·         Defining the life-cycle to be adopted according to the project.


    My technical activity has been constantly exploiting the most recent computer science tools and technology, including UML (“Unified Modeling Language”) and MDA (“Model Driven Architecture”),  together with object oriented languages and both custom-made and standard frameworks. This attitude has led to the successful design of modern applications distributed over heterogeneous platforms, interconnected through local networks or via Internet.


    I have gained a comprehensive experience in the space and avionics fields, simulations and simulators, designing fault-tolerant architectures for mission critical systems and distributed applications. Additionally, I have cooperated with groups, in search activities concerning component-based object-oriented design and in the specification of constraints, through UML, in real-time software systems.
