CV and Projects

 

ABOUT

My core expertise is about 

quantitative models and methods

to support decision making under uncertainty.



I have a decadal experience in the application of those methods for the management of complex systems, at all time-scales, and on very diverse contexts. In my projects, I start from the user's informational needs. Then, I employ solid analytical skills and the knowledge of a wide range of methodologies to transform data into meaningful and valuable information, creating value for the user. User satisfaction is my ultimate metric of success. I have a proven track of timely and effective deliveries, and I always guarantee the highest standards of professionalism.

Business Brainstorm

I consider myself enthusiastic and collaborative. I am passionate for my work, and I spread my passion to my working neighbors.  I am a team-player: I like the interaction and collaboration with colleagues and experts outside my field, for I believe that solutions lay in the intersection among disciplines. I am result oriented. I value working by objectives and I have a proven record of successful deliveries. For me, however, other than results, relationships matter, both personal and professional. I am a connector: I like to bring people together.


My vision is taking part in the collective problem solving process, bringing a contribution to a rational and equitable decision making for society. My values, which stem from this vision, are: analysis, strategic thinking, creativity, innovation, cooperation, communication, multidisciplinarity, integrity, responsibility, and respect.
