"If you can dream it, you can do it" ~ Walt Disney

I’m currently working as a Research Engineer at INRIA & UPMC-LIP6 (France) in the area of Data Semantics and Analytics.

Previously, after a short experience as a Software Engineer in 2007, I have held research positions at top-level institutions in Spain (Polytechnic University of Valencia, 2007-2012) and in New Zealand (University of Auckland, 2013-2014), where I have worked across multiple research domains including (but not limited to) Cyber-Physical Systems, Semantic Technologies and Cloud Computing.

I received a M.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the University of Calabria (Italy) in 2005 and a Ph.D. (Cum Laude) in Communications from the Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain) in 2011.

I have authored/co-authored well over 50 research publications, as well as I have been involved in more than 10 collaborative research projects.
