I am a Senior Solution Architect for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Singapore. I help AWS customers and partners to design and build successful AI/ML applications in the AWS cloud.

I have diverse experience in building and deploying AI/ML systems across multiple use-cases and industries. In the past I have worked as a senior researcher and team leader, focusing on IP creation and commercialization of technology, in the fields of  Computer Vision and Image Processing, across both academic and industrial R&D environments.

Between 2010-2012, I was a researcher for the University of Rome “Sapienza” and the CRAS Institute of Aerospace Research, where I developed medical-grade image processing software for mammographic images. Between 2012-2017 I worked as a Research Scientist in the Advanced Digital Sciences Center (ADSC), a research institute of the University of Illinois (UIUC) and A*Star, developing and commercializing computer vision technologies for face analysis and image quality assessment. Between 2017-2020 I was a Senior Principal Engineer in Panasonic Industrial Devices technology center (Singapore), where I led an engineering team in developing AI technologies for human sensing and industrial visual inspection.
