University of Salerno
Post Doc Researcher
Valerio Maggio has a PhD. in Computational Science from the University of Naples “Federico II” and he is currently a Postdoc researcher at the University of Salerno. His research interests are mainly focused on Machine Learning and Software Engineering, recently combined with Semantic Web technologies for linked data and big data analysis.
Valerio started developing open source software in 2004, when he was a bachelor degree student. In 2006, he wrote his first lines of Python in his favourite Vim-based dev environment. From then on, he contributed to several open source projects in this language. Currently he uses Python as a mainstream language for his machine learning code, making an intensive use of Scikit-learn and Matplotlib to crunch, munge, and analyse experimental data.Valerio is also long-time speaker at many Python conferences, including EuroPython, PyCon Italia and EuroScipy, an active member of the Italian Python community, and one of the main organizers of the first PyData Italian conference in 2015.
