About Me

Watson Solution Engineer at IBM Dublin. EIT Digital Master Graduate with a double degree in Computer Science from UNITN (Italy) and ELTE (Hungary).

Software Engineer and Data Scientist; experienced Java, Python and C++ programmer. My main expertise and interests are related to areas like machine learning, artificial neural networks, NLP, cellular automata, genetic algorithms, statistics and data science (data mining, analysis, prediction, visualization). Always open to explore and meddle with new technologies, approaches and paradigms.

AI and ALife worshiper, just really waiting to welcome our new robot overlords. Aspiring to get "closer to them" got me captured by movements like Quantified Self and Transhumanism, and interested in VR, Brain-Computer Interfaces and Mind Uploading.

Also attempting to sustain my artistic side, practicing regularly with drawing and painting, and occasionally working as a freelance artist, realizing both traditional and digital artworks.

Always trying to get better and learn more, while developing professional and social networks across the countries. Currently looking for valuable and stimulating working opportunities closely linked to Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.

Additional interests include lucid dreaming and the overall understanding of the brain mechanisms, rhetoric, epistemology, behavioral science, skiing, fitness and nutrition.


You can find most of my public programming projects on my Github page. I sometimes also write brief articles, like for my Facebook Conversation Analyzer and the more recent Quest for Better Sleep with Fitbit Data Analysis

Secondary Mildly Interesting Info

Books read and some personally-suggested Movies.

Closely related to the Quantified Self spirit, I am also very concerned about personal optimization, which I loosely define as “improvement of personal efficiency, by means of analysis and tweaking of behaviors, habits and routines”. I for example got used to watch videos faster (especially if just entertainment ones), generally between x1.2 and x1.5 depending on the content. About tools I highly suggest TiddlyWiki as a personal wiki. For time management I tend to follow the Pomodoro technique, and recently use a combination of Toggl and Wunderlist as TODOs, activities and habits trackers.
