I was born in Benevento a relatively small town in the south of Italy. It is a city and comune of Campania and the capital of the province of Benevento. It is situated about 50 kilometers in the northeast of Naples. Benevento occupies the site of the ancient Beneventum, originally Maleventum. Due to its fascinating and long past, it hosts several historical monuments and findings belonging to the Roman epoch, such as the Arch of Trajan, the church of Santa Sofia, and the Roman theatre. Benevento also hosts the University of Sannio founded in 1998. It is a modern and dynamic institution in constant evolution. It offers 4 faculties including courses for both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Software Engineering.
In 2006 I started my professional career attending a bachelor’s course in software engineering at the University of Sannio where, in 2011, I got the title of Engineer (in Italy, software engineering differs from computer science). In the meantime, I started several collaborations developing embedded software and designing digital devices. In 2010, I incorporated my first company in Rome. Confiding in my electronic knowledge and relying on my engineering background, I expanded my network with strategic collaborations. In doing this, I worked with Internet-of-Things (IoT) and System-on-Module (SoM) devices.
My love for writing and sharing my knowledge allowed me to create several educational articles (see the list) for the most famous Italian magazine of electronic, the Elettronica IN. However, during a collaboration with an international customer, I discovered also my love for the research. In particular, I participated in a research project aimed at measuring the harmful effects of extended noise exposure on the human body (here the outcome). Afterwhile, I came back to the university, and in 2015, I obtained a master’s degree cum laude in Software Engineering at the University of Sannio. In 2016, I continued to develop my academic career starting a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). Later, in 2019, I become the CEO of the LPSystems B.V., a company specialized in designing audio devices for broadcasting audio streams. Finally, in 2020, I joined the DEVINTA project at the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) in Switzerland as postdoc researcher in the REVEAL group.
