I am a software developer, entrepreneur, College lecturer and researcher.

I graduated in Economics and Computer Science and I got a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Milan (Italy) studying Serendipity in Music Recommender Systems. I have been a visiting researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, at the Freie Universitat Berlin and at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.

I have been lecturer of several courses (including Web development and Information Systems) in Bachelor and Master's degree programs at the Catholic University of Piacenza, Italy.

I am the author and founder of DaDaBIK (dadabik.org), one of the most popular PHP Rapid Application Development tool for creating Web Database Application without coding, available since 2001 and trusted by many customers (profite, non-profit and governative organizations) all over the world.

Working on Mentor.FM allowed me to combine my love for Music and for Technology and I am focusing all my passion on it.
