Short CV

  • FEBRUARY 2011. I started working in EXPRIVIA S.p.a. (Information Technology and Services industry) in Resource & Developer Lab
  • JANUARY 2011. I started the Ph.D. Course in Computer Science at Department of Computer Science, University of Bari, under the supervision of Prof. Giovanni Semeraro.
  • SEPTEMBER 2008 - FEBRUARY 2011. I'm one of the 20 young reasearcher of Molecular Biodiversity Laboratory (MBLAB). MBLAB is a private-public initiative started at the end of 2007 and partially funded by MUR (Ministry of University and Research), is led by IBM and is located in BARI. MBLAB research activities explore Molecular Biodiversity in order to build innovative industrial bioinformatic platforms applied to human health as well as to agroindustrial domains. Especially i was involved in task concerning the processing of non structured data sources like scientific publications in natural language.
  • APRIL 2008. I Received a Laurea Degree in Computer Science from University of Bari (LACAM LAB). I discussed a thesis titled: ″Representation Model for semantic management of documents″.

  • NSHL Semantic Search Engine.Le API di Lucene, il più famoso motore di ricerca open-source, sono state integrate con una ontologia di riferimento in ambito biomedico (Gene Ontology) per realizzare un motore di ricerca che permetta agli utenti di effettuare ricerche sematiche utilizzando anche i concetti dell’ontologia e allo stesso tempo utilizzi i concetti stessi e la loro presenza nei documenti per dare una panoramica concettuale dei risultati.
