About meI'm an environmental engineer addicted to scientific GIS development playing in the field of hydrologic and geomorphologic modelling. I also spend some of my time developing for mobile devices based on Android and thinkering with Arduino boards and sensors.
Projects and Opens Source
In the Free and Open Source world I develop and coordinate the JGrasstools and Geopaparazzi projects and am in the Project Steering Comittee of uDig.
Since 2005 I'm cofounder of HydroloGIS, where we work mainly on hydro-geomorphological risk analysis and develop/make use of uDig, Geopaparazzi and JGrasstools. It is HydroloGIS that gives me the possibility to enjoy what I am doing every day and be able to pursue my need for open development.
I am currently part of the research team of professor Tonon at the Department of Science and Technology the Free University of Bolzano. There I work on LiDAR data analysis for forestry applications and seamless integration within GIS.
I have a degree in Environmental Engineering at the University of Trento and a PhD in Environmental Sciences at the University of Urbino where I developed with the LINEE group uDig extensions for digital field mapping, which are bundled in the BeeGIS project.

And to summarize my thoughts here's my favorite quote:
