I work as User Experience (UX) Manager and Principal User Researcher at Informatica, a big-data company aggressively focusing on innovative UX and data analytics software products. I lead UX researchers and designers to innovate the UX or Human-Computer Interaction design of enterprise software for data management. Before Informatica, I worked as user researcher at Xerox Research (Xerox PARC and XRCE).
I came to the US as a Fulbright fellow for a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction at Virginia Tech and then Penn State, where I graduated. I ended up loving and living in this country. I periodically miss and return to my hometown (Alberobello) and family in Italy. I live in the Bay Area, California, with my lovely wife Valeria, a talented Californian-Argentinian architect.
I enjoy outdoor activities such as biking and kayaking, international places and people, movies that make me think and feel, stimulating books, and especially good food and wine with friends.
