Born in 1978, I started my earlier IT experiments with C64.
Jazz music enthusiast, great reader and seeker of good literature, I got a degree in Computer Engineering and a PhD in Material Science and I currently work as a computer scientist and Engineer on the EPOS Infrastructure Project at INGV.

Topics of interest and expertise include: scientific data formats and metadata standards for interoperability; interoperability of systems through standard web services (SOA, FDSN WS etc.); CRIS systems (e.g. CERIF); big data and noSQL databases; web application development with OO frameworks; coordination and team management.
I’m also involved in EU projects as advisory, ICT expert member or coordinator.
Member of the Eurocris Organization.

Other interests include: playing guitar and other instruments, composing music both on my own and with the nerd-jazz band Exfalsoquodlibet; participating to the community life of my parrish and joining the local Taizé prayer; reading good books and essaying my own writing experiments; enjoying life and nature whenever I can by going to seaside or mountains.

    Computer Scientist and Engineer

    Working on the EPOS EU project at Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia. My role in the EPOS Management Office included the design and coordination of the development of EPOS e-Infrastructure.

    Developed web-application:
    - RIDE database, an inventory of the research Infrastructures Involved in EPOS
    - EPOS demonstrator, in collaboration with GFZ team. A web application to demonstrate and validate the functionality of the designed EPOS system and metadata catalogue

  • Università degli studi "la Sapienza" di Roma

Gli Stancocchi – 2013

Romanzetto per grandi e piccoli

Un ragazzo appassionato di videogiochi.
Due occhi che scappano, stremati dal superlavoro.
Un gatto pericoloso, un geco buono.
Due dottori ai limiti della realtà.
Un Grillo Parlante un po’ saccente.
Dei sindacalisti ingrigiti, un papà buono.

Un mix di personaggi esplosivo per un racconto dedicato a ragazzi, giovani e adulti..
