- information retrieval / search
- linked (open) data / semantic web
- software design and development
- teaching / mentoring
I have a mixed education background: a bachelor's degree in Computer Science Engineering (2003, with a thesis on Music Information Retrieval), and a professional master's course in Sound Engineering (2007, with a thesis on gestural interface to MAX/MSP platform).
From 2003 to 2006, I worked as a consultant and developer at Artificial Intelligence Research at Tor Vergata (ART) group.
From 2007-20016 I worked full-time as a freelancer: teaching programming languages and best practices, mentoring small companies on topics like Information Retrieval and Linked Data, and collaborating as a software engineer, often in the contexts of cultural heritage and public administration (open data publishing, and related).
I love using graphs in many ways: from knowledge representation, to graph databases (RDF, LPG, etc) & linked open data. I like being involved actively in "civic hacking" projects. I'm also an enthusiast adopter of the Scala language.
I [seriously] love opensource.
