I work as a physicist and hack in my spare time.
Or the other way around - I don't really know.

I graduated in Physics at the University of Perugia, then joined the VIRGO collaboration as a graduate student. My main interests are Statistical Mechanics, Computational Physics... and whatever else gives me an excuse to use a computer. I spent one year at the University of Michigan, then moved back to Italy and defended my PhD.

I joined PROSA because of its commitment to Free Software. After PROSA was acquired, I worked for Linuxcare. My areas of interest are embedded systems (Etlinux), device driver development (Sun T3) and parallel computing on Beowulf-class machines. After collaborating with Innominate AG, I decided it was time to pause a bit and look for a new identity within this community.

A quick update, to remind myself where I am:

  • worked for 8 months at the University of Michigan (loved it)
  • in the meantime, Innominate evaporated (Doh!)
  • moved back to Italy (still feels nice)
  • rented an apartment downtown Perugia
  • moved in with my girlfriend (loved it)
  • got PhD (it was about time!)
  • moving to Tokyo real soon!
Confusing uh? ;-)

I won't try to summarize all the things that have happened since last time I updated this diary! Most of them have been good though, so I won't complain. :-) I'll refer my italian-speaking friends to this diary.

Overall, I'm having a great time at the U of M. I'm just back from San Diego,
where I served in a review panel on Information Technology Research.
A new and extremely interesting experience.

You can't sleep at night and decide to fly to Italy right away,
to appear in front of your girlfriend the moment she comes out of the room where she has just defended her thesis. :)
I feel alive!

I've landed in Detroit a couple of hours ago.
The warmth of Rome, this morning, is definitely far away.

Long time I haven't updated this diary! I spent one busy month in Italy,
but luckily had time for my girlfriend, my family and my niece (she now calls me "chicco").

I just moved to Ann Arbor and have started my research work at the U of M.

I rented a nice apartment nearby the campus area. So I'll be able to do away with cars - I hate to drive.
I'm now in the progress of bootstrapping my life here: phone, DSL access, bank weirdness, university paperwork, stuff in the fridge...

And, well, life is strange: when I was in Italy I worked for Linuxcare.
Now that I live in Michigan, I ended up working for Innominate AG, which is based in Germany.
Somehow, I'm bound to work as a "real remote remotee". ;-)
I hope things will work out nicely with this new job - I'll be playing with embedded Linux projects, which sounds good enough to me!

Back to Italy. Girlfriend, warm sun, pizza... is there anything else a man could possibly want? ;)
Now if I only had my luggage... :/

Out to lunch with Daniela, joke, eugy! some 100% european dessert and coffee ;)
