I am a Software Engineer with a background in online privacy and networking. I am passionate about Open Source and reading Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels.
I proudly support open projects like Firefox, Gentoo, and Enlightenment.
I did my PhD at the Dipartimento di Informatica ”R.M. Capocelli” of the University of Salerno under the supervision of Prof. Vittorio Scarano and Researcher Delfina Malandrino.. My thesis was about online privacy, how data is aggregated, a profile built and how to make user more aware of what is happening.
After my PhD, I worked in the UK for two years at Grapeshot (now Oracle) providing Contextual Intelligence Solutions to partners for Custom Targeting, Brand Safety, etc. My focus was backend development using a micro-services architecture and analytic system for reporting.
After that, I continued to build (RESTFul) APIs mostly in Python, while some others in Java, and I had a brief experience with NLP and Question Answering systems.
