Past work

I worked as a software engineer for the AVO (Astrophysical Virtual Observatory), the phase A project of Euro-VO.

I was deeply involved in the conception and development of the AVO prototype, a software tool based on Aladin and intensively used during the annual AVO demonstrations.
The January 2004 demo (AVO First Science) led to the publication of the first refereed scientific paper based on end-to-end use of Virtual Observatory tools (Discovery of optically faint obscured quasars with Virtual Observatory tools).
