Who I am
Mobile Developer from Pisa (ITALY) based in Hamburg (GERMANY)
I’m a young mobile developer that is constantly looking for challenges and new technologies. I’m looking for a work place where I can constantly learn new skills and continue to grow as a developer. I am comfortable working as a team and work well under stress. I have a go-getter attitude that drives me to always do my best and never give up.
I believe in free software principles and in respect of others. I hope to find a job that will help and improve lives of billions of people.
I’m currently working as an Android engineer for Yelp in the Hamburg office. My main focus is to keep the quality of the Yelp apps to the top level.

As of 2014, I have been working as a Freelance Mobile Developer. I developed ad-hoc Android solutions upon client requests. I take great care over the course of the entire app life-cycle, from requirements analysis to debugging and deployment. I usually develop my products using Android native development. I've experienced and solved several common mobile issues such as async execution, power consumption, and devices different form factors.

Thesis title: Hand gesture recognition in a multi-sensor wearable environment
Supervisor: Prof. Vincenzo Gervasi
Hand gestures play a fundamental role in human interaction. In this thesis we investigate if consumer-level wearable devices can be exploited to support hand gesture recognition. In particular we present a system comprising two wearable devices positioned on a user’s arm (an LG G Watch R and a Thalmic Myo). These two devices collect data from accelerometer sensors and electromyographic sensors. Readings was filtered, segmented and stored. We tested our system with ten different users with a gesture set composed by twelve gestures. Collected signals was used to build a recognizer and we evaluated the recognition accuracy of our model within different test cases.

Thesis title: Porting a framework for gestures recognition on Android platform
Supervisor: Prof. Antonio Cisternino
In this thesis we ported the GestIT library on Android platform. GestIT was available in C# and we adapted it to work with Android mobile devices. Furthermore, we developed an App to demonstrate GestIT features: Gesture Paint.

What I love
From 2001, I’m a member of AGESCI, the local scout association. In particular, I’m a member of Pisa 4 scout group.
From 2001 to 2006 I’ve followed the boy scout program, and from 2006 to 2011 I’ve followed the rover scout program (venturing). Scouting represents a fundamental experience of my life. With boy scouts, I’ve discovered the importance of nature and I’ve learned to respect it. Scouting represented a fundamental activity even for character development and it taught me to assume my own responsibilities.
From 2011, I decided to offer my time to my association as a scout leader, I’ve taught scout techniques to young guys from 11 to 20 years old. I’ve completed the wood badge course, a scout leadership program, composed by three different camps (CFT, CFM, CFA). During these camps I’ve learned advanced communication and leadership skills, fundamental for my scout leader career.
From 2013, I’m a member of BitPrepared, a group of (mad) scout leaders with IT skills. We organize every year a scout camp for boy scouts (11-16) where we teach how computer science can improve scout techniques. Take a look at our software on GitHub.
I enjoy taking photos, in particular, still life or street photography photos. I’m just a newbie, my cam is a Nikon D3200. Take a look at my sets on 500px or Flickr.
I also like singing and playing acoustic guitar. I usually listen (and play) rock, pop and folk music, in particular traditional Irish music.
Finally, I’m a Nintendo fan! My favorite IPs are Super Mario & The Legend of Zelda, but my favorite game is Super Smash Bros!
