Geospatial Data Scientist and certified GISP® (GIS Professional) with cross-disciplinary background in statistics/machine learning, geospatial analysis/modeling & visualization, and programming. Over the years, I've had the opportunity to lead and coordinate teams and projects, while always having an underlying motivation to learn and constantly grow my technical skills. I am currently employed as a Geospatial Data Scientist with The Nature Conservancy in Denver, CO.
Obtained my PhD in Geomatics from the University of Florida, my MSc in Statistics for Biomedicine, the Environment, and Technology from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” (Italy), and a BSc in Statistics and Information Systems from the University of Florence (Italy).
I am a self-driven and dynamic professional with a passion for creating useful and reusable modeling & software tools to help others — check out my projects in the work section or explore my project code repositories on Github.
I love team sports — especially soccer and basketball — enjoy travelling, brewery-hopping, and baking when time allows.
I grew up in Florence (Italy) and moved to Rome (Italy) during my master degree studies. In 2010, I moved to the USA for my doctoral studies, and have worked ever since in places like Florida, Raleigh (North Carolina), East Lansing (Michigan), and Denver (Colorado).
