Background: Since 1999, year of his graduation, for about 4 years, he had the chance to apply the deep and rich knowledge acquired during the challenging studies at Polytechnic of Bari in many markets, from CRM to design and development of software for control and monitoring of railway transports.

In 2015, he joins the team at Planetek Italia, SpaceStream SBU, being involved in software engineering as architect and designer of space and ground systems, with a focus on heavy parallel processing of EO big data streams.
