About Myself

After completing a quantitative education in Financial and Actuarial Mathematics and Mathematical Engineering, I worked for five years on implementing Artificial Intelligence solutions in the banking sector. Following that, I had the opportunity to handle Strategic Initiatives in Intesa Sanpaolo CEO’s Staff. More recently, I transitioned to the CRO Area as the Head of IT & Cyber Risk Analysis and Controls Office.

I am a technology lover and in my free time I manage a non-profit association that promotes the spread of theater culture in the Turin area.
