Work Experience

Senior Consultant and Developer

2019 - PRESENT
QuasarLabs
  • Developed and implemented novel technologies and execute data science projects for European companies. I was responsible for carrying out projects from the conceptual phase through requirements definition, development, and deployment.
  • Developed a web platform for energy consumption monitoring, visualization, and forecasting for the printing industry using machine learning.
  • Created a shop floor and cloud connectivity solution for industrial machinery using open communication models.
  • Designed an ultra-low power IoT wearable device powered by an energy harvester and software stack to acquire and visualize data on an Android device.

Founder

2020 - 2020
Entrepreneur First
  • Generated deep-tech business ideas in the field of industry 4.0 and smart factory, and validated their feasibility and potential.
  • Contacted hundreds of stakeholders: potential customers, technology providers, and industry experts for insights and market validation.
  • Networked with a global community of entrepreneurs and innovators.
Technologies: Startup Funding, Deep Learning, Entrepreneurship

Postdoctoral Researcher

2017 - 2020
CNR-STIIMA, Italian National Research Council
  • Developed an intelligent machine component: smart CNC spindle. I developed a sensory system, an embedded edge node (IoT), algorithms for analysis of acquired data, and communications with other systems, including a cloud back end.
  • Created a high-performance, GPU-accelerated implementation of Eulerian motion magnification algorithm to amplify micromotions of objects in high-speed video feeds.
  • Modeled, simulated, and optimized a discrete-manufacturing system for metal parts production to improve overall performance (minimize net present cost) and decrease environmental impact.
  • Conceived, obtained funds, and executed research projects. I established and managed relationships with relevant industrial partners and published research findings in top-tier scientific journals.
  • Mentored, coordinated, and led several early-stage researchers and senior students in carrying out research projects or thesis work.

Co-founder and CEO

2016 - 2017
Pixelent
  • Created a working prototype of a stereoscopic vision system for teleoperation of unmanned vehicles, consisting of a robotic dual camera head, an image acquisition platform based on NVidia Tegra, and a software stack for streaming and VR rendering.
  • Sat at the table on multiple occasions with investors and entrepreneurs looking for means to VC fund my business.
  • Won a startup award at the "Kraków Business Starter" competition (second place out of 109 contenders).
  • Led a team of two developers (hardware and software) in a pre-seed startup to develop an MVP. I defined technical requirements, supervised execution, and reviewed deliverables.
Technologies: Qt 5, Computer Vision, Virtual Reality (VR), Machine Vision, Mechatronics

Early Stage Researcher

2013 - 2017
CNR-ITIA, Italian National Research Council
  • Created physics-based mathematical models to predict the energy expenditure of CNC machines during production. These numerical digital-twins were composed of analytical, numerical, and simulation sub-models.
  • Developed a sophisticated, hierarchical optimization algorithm to minimize energy demand and processing rate of industrial machines, introducing optimal machine parameter set-up and management policy choice.
  • Performed cost-effectiveness analysis of various policies for manufacturing system management applied to industrial partners use-case.
  • Collaborated and synchronized my work with other researchers, research groups, and partners, disseminating obtained research results in top-tier scientific journals and conferences.
Technologies: Signal Processing, Real-time Systems, Optimization, C++, Numerical Simulations, Numerical Methods, MATLAB, Data Science

Junior R&D Specialist

2012 - 2013
Rcc Nova
  • Initialized and developed a product line of embedded controllers for the railway industry: a tram pantograph control system and train vacuum sanitary system. Yield from that project constituted a fair portion of the company's revenue.
  • Participated in industrial measurement (NVH) campaigns for international customers.
  • Performed software testing for an international client whose main product was a software suite for industrial measurements.

Energy Monitoring and Forecasting Web Application

I developed a web application with a back end to collect, store, and analyze energy data from power consumption sensors located at customers' locations. It included a machine learning random forest regression model to forecast future demand based on historical data and customer meta-data. I also created a front end to visualize data and predictions.

Hierarchical Modeling and Optimization Framework for Machine Energy Prediction

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0959652618327422
In this research work, I created a framework to mathematically model energy demand and processing rate of operations and technological processes in industrial machinery. It combined the use of analytical, simulation, and black-box models (numerical digital-twins).

My work included using regression methods for model identification and sophisticated optimization algorithms to minimize energy use and ensure the highest productivity. I was responsible for the delivery of this project, which being part of a larger European research project, had an allocated budget of €250,000.

GPU Accelerated Implementation of Motion Magnification Algorithm

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLB_un1qaSw
I implemented an Eulerian motion magnification algorithm developed by MIT exploiting GPU acceleration, which allows efficient processing of large, high frame-rate video captures. The purpose is to extract micro motions invisible to the human eye for various industrial applications, e.g.:
- Intuitive operational deflection shapes visualization
- Dynamic analysis of micro-motions without using accelerometers
