I develop user-centered digital products for companies and organizations. My main interests are usability, accessibility, and creating environments that let people cooperate and be productive. During my career I have designed websites, intranets, web and desktop applications, large-scale information systems, and general software tools.
If you want to know more about me the best place to start is my Twitter account.
These are the pages I designed for the Central Bank of Italy e-recruiting application:
These are the pages I designed for the Italian Financial Ombudsman:
These are the pages I designed for the Italian Insurance Authority:
During my career, depending on the needs of the project I was working on, I played the roles of:
Rome (ITALY) / 2007-present
In these past nine years I have been working on several in house projects, either as product designer, front end developer, analyst, or project manager. My main areas of work are digital product design (web and mobile), usability, and accessibility.
These are some of my latest projects:
Palermo (ITALY) / 2005-2007
I helped ISMETT securing funds for the creation of the Ri.MED Foundation by developing a vision of the research areas that the Foundation would focus on.
Palermo (ITALY) / 2004-2007
I developed, and taught, to postgraduate students in biotechnology and medical sciences, a bioinformatics course aimed at providing practical tools for solving practical research problems.
Cambridge (UK) / 2001-2004
I rewrote/redesigned most of the C++ and SQL backend software dedicated to the processing, storage, and publishing of genomic research data, so that, despite the largely increased volumes of data submitted by the automated genome sequencing projects, the entire pipeline kept running in a timely fashion without having to buy new servers. At the time I left, the Oracle db had grown over 1 TB in size and contained about 50 million bibliographic records. A representative sample of the software I was writing at the time is the C++ Phoenix EMBL Parser hosted at bioinformatics.org.
Rome (ITALY) / 2000-2001
I developed a custom C++ logging module to help diagnose performance and programming problems in Smarten billing engine (Smarten was a product for small/medium-size telcos).
Cambridge (UK) / 1996-2000
I did the usual things that a junior programmer does: I wrote code, I read programming books, I attended conferences, and I seriously underestimated tasks.
In 2011, for the Italian Agile Day, I gave a talk on UX and Agile Development: an introduction.
In a distant past I was the founder of two open source projects that were used to produce real software (e-mail clients, antivirus software, phylogenetic analysis pipelines).
I am the main contributing editor of the Italian Infomedia Facebook page.
I developed the software for the following research papers in social statistics dedicated to the study of poverty:
