Professional Experiences

  • Sep 2020-present: After a multi-year collaboration with several successfull freelance projects I joined the quantum computing startup Qu&Co as VP of Quantum Software. I am responsible for building the software infrastructure for running quantum computing simulations on different platforms, improving existing quantum algorithms and devising new ones. I am working mainly on the cloud infrastructure of the company (running on AWS) and with IBM Qiskit and AWS Braket for quantum algorithms development. Stay tuned for some amazing news coming in 2021.
  • Sep 2019- Sep 2020: Product Research and Innovation Lead at Forescout Technologies. I am responsible for the product innovation roadmap and I contribute to shape the future product vision. I am also an active member of the central software architecture team in charge of defining and guiding the design for on-going migration to a cloud-only platform.
  • Apr 2018- Sep 2019: Research Engineer at SecurityMatters, recently acquired by Forescout, working on cybersecurity for critical infrastructures. I mainly focus on innovative algorithms for correlationg security events to help security analysts and field engineers in better protecting their organizations. I also supervised several master students (see for example here) on different cybersecurity topics.
  • Aug 2016- Mar 2018: Research Engineer at Atos Bull in Grenoble, working on developing application and network library for the Sequana supercomputer.


  • 2019: Design Driven Business Innovation course at the Amsterdam Business School. This 3-months course focuses on how to ideate and execute valuable innovation projects within a corporate environment and ends with an individual innovation project proposal.
  • 2016-2018: PhD in computational physics from the University Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris with a thesis on the application of quantum Monte Carlo techniques to high-temperature superconductors. During the PhD I worked a lot with parallel computing and with some of the most powerful supercomputers in the world.
  • 2011-2013: Master in Physics of Complex Systems from the Polytechnic University of Turin with a thesis on material simulation for fuel cells development.
