    CV

    In Short

    Self-committed and motivated researcher, I love tackling new challenges and implementing. On my way through geo-informatics, I feel more comfortable inside open-source collaborative environments. I believe in the importance of open discussions and peopleware, in preemptive analysis and design (and in code comments).

    After graduating as TLC engineer in the University of Ferrara, I gained experience as spatial analyst for air quality applications during my PhD, developing geostatistical multivariate models for particles exposure mapping, with satellite imagery.

    During my postdoctoral fellowship in the Jacobs University in Bremen, I am (currently) working on the design and implementation of OGC geo-image web services (WCS/WCPS) for visualization and server-side processing of Big spatio-temporal gridded datasets via the open-source rasdaman project.

    In the recent years I have been working continuously in highly international environments, developing side by side with my team members, tutoring students and providing continuous support to the open-source community willing to use our software.
    I have been presenting the proceedings of my research at several international scienti c conferences and symposiums. I am able to summarize the key aspects of a work and present it in a proper manner to others, leveraging the level of details to the di erent contexts: from the short presentation to domain outsiders up to more technical tutorials for full dedicated workshops.

    Technically, I am a Linux user since years; I am fond of many programming languages (e.g. Java, Bash, R, or C/C++); I have been designing and implementing active PostgreSQL databases; I am a git-enthusiast and I can easily deal with distributed and versioned development. Finally, when it comes to exhibit the results I like to be assisted by Inkscape, Gimp and LATEX.

    Spatial Analysis and Modelling --- Remote Sensing --- Computer Science --- Telecommunications.
