About Me

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

Currently Watson Solution Engineer at IBM Dublin. EIT Digital Master Graduate with a double degree in Computer Science from University of Trento (Italy) and ELTE (Hungary); specialization in Distributed Systems.

AI and ALife worshiper, really just waiting to welcome our new robot overlords. Until then the designated reigning is data. Love playing with it: understand mechanisms, recognize patterns and make predictions. Inevitably got involved in movements like Quantified Self and Transhumanism, as well as interested in VR/AR, Brain-Computer Interfaces and Mind Uploading.

Currently looking for valuable and stimulating working opportunities closely linked to Data Science and Machine Learning.

Projects and Articles

Most of my open source projects are hosten on my Github account.

I write about technical topics, projects or secondary interests of mine on Medium. See for example

Art

As a hobby I work on improving my artistic side, practicing regularly with drawing, painting and 3D modeling. Occasionally working as a freelance artist, realizing both traditional and digital artworks. Tools of the trade: Phothoshop, Blender and my loyal Wacom Intuos Pro.

See deviantArt | Sketchfab (3D works)

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”. For such task, I want to suggest TiddlyWiki as a personal wiki. For time management I tend to follow the Pomodoro technique, and a combination of Toggl and Wunderlist as TODOs and habits trackers.

Additional interests include lucid dreaming, rhetoric, epistemology, behavioral science, skiing, fitness and nutrition.
