I am a mathematical biologist by training and machine learning team leader and researcher by current professional occupation.
I work at Ericsson in Santa Clara, California, as part of their Global Artificial Intelligence Accelerator. Previously, I worked at Netflix in Los Gatos, California, and at the Institute of Marine Sciences, University of California, Santa Cruz. From 2012 to 2015, I was a European Union Marie Curie Fellow for the project "RAPIDEVO" at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and at the Polytechnic of Milan, Italy.
My academic work has been recognized with awards, invited talks in Europe, US, and South America, media coverage, and has been featured in a wide range of leading scientific journals, including Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Ecological Applications, PLoS Computational Biology, and Biological Conservation. I still do some academic work in my spare time, most of it on or inspired by the decade-long work I did on the evolution of life histories in long-lived organisms and on the effects of extreme events on demographic and life-history processes of natural populations.
