I believe what we do is as important as our ability to share it with others
Convolutional Neural Networks to analyze images
ODSC 2020 talking about how to process images with Convolutional Neural Networks
In this session I focused on image processing using Convolutional Neural Networks. These algorithms were introduces in the 50s and 60s thanks to studies on cats' brains, and are quite different from other Neural Networks, trying to mimic the functioning of our visual cortex.
Spark +AI Summit
Working with 1 MIllion Time Series a Day
It's been such an honor to be among the speakers at Spark + AI Summit. This is the biggest event worldwide concerning Apache Spark, the most performing among the (few) analytical tool allowing to analyze huge amounts of data very quickly. Apache Spark has become the de facto standard for Big Data Analytics in just a few years. The technology was created within the University of California, and subsequently donated to the Apache Software Foundation, Apache Spark provides up to 100 times better performances with respect to the previous paradigm, Hadoop’s MapReduce.
This solution is having great success among Data Scientists who need to minimize their models’ training and prediction times.
In my session here I presented a proprietary solution ideated by Dataskills to carry out semi-real time analysis of a huge amount of time series data, for which to give a precise prediction of future behavior by use of a single computational engine.
WPC 2020 talking about Natural Language Processing
This year at WPC I covered a central topic in Machine Learning, useful especially when working with images, videos and text.That is, transfer learning, which means exploiting existing models, usually very powerful because trained on huge amounts of data, in order to create better ad-hoc models for our own problem, but much faster and with better predictive performances.
Campus Party Milano 2018
Machine Learning in Action : from theory to applications
It was such an experience to talk to 200 super-interested people who were there listening to me to know more about the exciting field of Data Science. As always, I tried to share my passion for Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining with some examples of the lastest applications of Machine Learning models.
Campus Party is a global event connecting young entrepreneurs, students and investors in the tech industry. It already experienced 72 editions in 13 different countries. I was honored to give a speech in the 2018 event in Milan: "Predictive Analytics in Action: from theory to applications" with around 200 participants showing up to listen to me. Such good vibes, I hope to do it again soon!
WPC Milano 2018
Applied Machine Learning: from theoretical to actionable deep learning structures
WPC is the biggest italian event on Microsoft technologies and I was very honored and excited to give a one-hour class on a very cutting-edge topic such as that of Deep Learning.
Metail Customers Welcoming
We gathered together to collect girls most genuine feedbacks on our product
While working at Metail, I proposed and organized an event to open our office's doors to end-clients and let them try our technology in an informal, fun way. The feedback received were gathered in this video.
Bachelor in Economics and Finance
I teach this course to the students enrolled in the Bachelor in Economics and Finance.
This is the first compulsory informatics course for first year students.
The course covers advanced use of excel and python basics.
Big Data Analytics
Bachelor, Master, SDA and PhD
This is an extracurricular course covering the basics of Predictive Analytics, focusing on data preparation and different regression, classification and clustering algorithms. I teach this class to students enrolled in Bachelor, Master, SDA and PhD programs at Bocconi University.
London, UK 🇬🇧 2016
The most important experience after having lived in the United States. I not only learnt a new job, but also how to build honest and strong business friendships, I found out how people working with me see me, and on the basis of their feedback I did my best to continuously improve.
I became psychologically stronger, learnt to deal with daily problems without external support, and proved myself that I could successfully work and study at the same time.
Back in London 🇬🇧 2020
I always knew that my future would have been abroad, because diverse, international and fast-moving environments are the most stimulating for me, and thus the ones that help me do my best. After an incredible experience as a Data Scientist in Milan, where I had the opportunity to learn the job being mentored by one of my former university professors, and founder of the firm, I finally decided it was time to take the next big step, and moved back to London in May 2020, during the biggest pandemic ever experienced in my lifetime (COVID-19).
Moving during those times has been all but easy, and the virtual onboarding has been far from what everyone had expected, but to me being here now really shows that nothing is impossible to do, if you really believe in it.
I've had experience as a dancer, performer, singer, songwriter, and radio speaker
Brain Cherries Podcast 🎧
👇🏻 listen to podcast episodes
Co-host of the Brain Cherries Podcast, where we interview innovators in different sectors, with a focus on technology, and data analytics.
Every week we share our discoveries about exciting new inventions, start-ups, apps, new artists, and ideas that inspired us.
We also interview managers, innovators, entrepreneurs, who are willing to share with us their secret formula for success.

Progetto Glik is the first italian Show Choir made up of great artists and directed by highly skilled people with awesome ideas. Alessandro Mahmoud, winner of Sanremo 2019, was also part of this project.
Jazz Wave 🎶
I' have been a co-speaker at Jazz Wave, a two-hours program focused on jazz music, ideated by saxophon player Mirko Fait.
Such a great opportunity to get to interview amazing jazz artists.
My newest adventure, finally merging the passion for writing and that for music. I find no better way to communicate my feelings with the external world.
A wonderful experience that made me grow both on an artistical level and on a personal one. I was trained by highly skilled professionists as Alessandro Arcodia and Alice Mistroni that helped me improving my vocal and theatrical skills.
Founded in 2007 together with the drums player, the band started off with different components and only after a couple of years was set up in the final composition.
From 2010 onwards the band has several gigs around Milan and also took part to contests.
The main genre played is rock and the band was concentrated on playing the songs with their own personal flavor.
Check our my reviews of art expositions on Ergo website. Ergo is the Bocconi association for Art and Culture that, together with several other initiatives, publishes articles related to various topics.
