As a senior advisor I support the activities of the R&D Seismology and Acoustics department and in particular of the Orfeus Data Centre. My areas of expertise include IT architecture and data science. I have been actively working in international initiatives and collaborations contributing to several EU projects. I am involved in Orfeus European Integrated Data Archive (www.orfeus-eu.org/data/eida) where currently I coordinate the EIDA Technical Commission. My main research focus is about how to build enhanced data management, curation and publication services by using catalogues and metadata.
