Freelancing

I am a Freelance Data Scientist based in Europe, living between Trento, Italy and Berlin, Germany. With over five years of experience in the industry and solid background in research I can help you through the entire process of building data-driven services: schedule a call or email me if you would like to work together.

Short bio

I am Lead Data Scientist at Minodes, a Telefónica NEXT company operating in the retail and transport analytics space. I currently serve as Start-Up Chile and Ampair Mentor advising on technology and strategy. I founded Skysense in 2014, a pioneering startup in the field of autonomous charging stations for aerial robots. I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science earned at the University of Trento for my research on processing data with uncertainty. I interned at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center and the Qatar Computing Research Institute, working on data stream processing and data cleaning. I have co-authored eight publications in major data mining conferences including SIGMOD, VLDB, and EDBT.
