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.

My Expertise and topics of interest and include: scientific data formats and metadata standards for interoperability; interoperability of systems through standard web services; Research Infrastructures architecture design and implementation; coordination and team management.
I’m also involved in EU projects as advisory, ICT expert member and coordinator of IT team.
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.
