After an initial period dedicated to research and development in the field of parallel computing for High Energy Physics ( in the early 1990's), has subsequently worked on the design and management of IT infrastructures. Since 2000, he became interested in developing architectural solutions for the delivery of Web-Oriented services, promoting the usage of open source technologies in the contexts of high complexity applications.
