Year of birth 1987
Work email piero@zeelo.co
Work address c/ Sardenya 229, 08013 Barcelona, Spain
Nationality Italian

I work as Data Science Lead at Zeelo, an on-demand coach service whose mission is to make collective transport smart and data-driven. At Zeelo, I lead the efforts of developing an advanced AI platform that predicts the transport demand through the analysis of different data sources. Its ultimate goal is to automatically schedule direct routes, establish pick up points and define dynamic time tables.

Before Zeelo, I have worked as Data Scientist in research and technology centers. In my 8 years experience in the field of data analytics I acquired and mastered my data-oriented skills and practical know-how in a number of application fields, ranging from the study of human behavior (applied to mobility, web surfing, quality of experience and more) to the development of machine learning systems to diagnose computer network impairments.

My PhD studies at the Technical University of Vienna (Austria) have helped me complementing my profile with a theoretical and research-oriented attitude. During my PhD, I have authored more than 30 scientific publications in major international conferences and journals.
