Data Scientis

I'm a computer geek, data mining and research passionate, with a Ph.D in communication and complex systems and years of experience in teaching in Universities in Italy, France and Morocco, and online, of course!

I work as consultant in the field of data mining and machine learning and I like writing about new technologies and data mining.

I spent the last 9 years working as freelance and researcher in the field of social media analysis, benchmark analysis and web scraping for database building, in particular in the field of buzz analysis and sentiment analysis for universities, startups and web agencies across UK, France, US and Italy.
