IBM Research

Research Software Engineer in Visual Analytics

My mission at IBM Research is to develop interactive tools to support and improve the productivity of data scientists. My research mostly involves the fields of Visual Analytics and Data Visualization, with additional interest for Augmented and Virtual Reality within the broader field of Human Computer Interaction. My current main project is IBM BlueSky (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChdCGGXd6tI), which involves the development of classifiers to assess the symptoms of Parkinson's disease over time, monitoring patients through a set of wearable sensors.

Unishare

Cofounder and Lead Developer

Unishare is an Italian startup involving 23 universities and more than 10'000 students in Italy. I personally directed both front end and back end development of the web platform, as well as the development of the respective mobile application. This experience improved my expertise in team management and in web technologies, PHP and Javascript among all (though our next release will be based on Node.js).
