After obtaining a M.Sc. in Particle Physics at the University of Torino,
Italy, in 2010 I worked for almost a year as a fellow for the CNRS (France)
in two different laboratories (Subatech, Nantes and LPC, Clermont-Ferrand).
Currently I am a Ph.D. student at the University and INFN, Torino. I work
for the ALICE experiment since 2009 and starting from early 2010 I am
actively involved in the definition and implementation of the data storage
model for PROOF-based analysis facilities (AAF): this led to a dataset
stager (afdsmgrd), that robustly transfers data upon request by taking into
account network issues and files corruption, currently in production in all
AAFs and distributed as a part of ROOT. I am also developing a cloud
infrastructure in Torino based on OpenNebula, aimed to provide PROOF-based
clusters on-the-fly running on dynamically-deployed virtual machines. My
preferred working environments are Unix flavors, while my language skills
cover mostly C/C++, Java, Ruby and Python.
