I am a mathematical biologist by training and machine learning team leader, manager, and researcher by current and quite fun professional occupations.
I work at Ericsson in Santa Clara, California, in the Global Artificial Intelligence Accelerator. Previously, I worked at Netflix in Los Gatos, California, and at the Institute of Marine Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Between 2012 and 2015, I was a Global Marie Curie Fellow for the project "RAPIDEVO" at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and the Polytechnic of Milan, Italy.
My academic work has been recognized with media coverage and invited talks in Europe, US, and South America, and has been featured in a wide range of leading scientific journals, including Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Ecological Applications, Journal of the Royal Society Interface, Biological Conservation, and PLoS Computational Biology. I still do some academic work in my spare time, mostly 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 the demographic and life-history processes of natural populations.
Here, you can find information on (or link to) my peer-reviewed publications, Google Scholar Citations page, academic CV, data scientist resume, a collection of bests and worsts, slides of some of my talks, code, photos of the model systems I used for my research, conferences I attended, and trips I took, and a blog mainly related to my academic and intellectual interests. Contact me if you have any questions.
