Paolo Ciccarese's self portrait in San Francisco Paolo Ciccarese, PhD Software Engineer - Knowledge Architect - Biomedical Scientist




We live in a networked economy driven by data and knowledge. Smart use of interdisciplinary data combined with effective detection and control of knowledge loss are paramount for sustaining and improving performance of individuals, organizations, and ultimately society as a whole.


I work towards enabling effective data, information and knowledge acquisition, curation, sharing, use and reuse. I historically focused on the biomedical domain but methods and tools are generally applicable.


I am pragmatic* and hands-on. I favor agile methodologies**. Curiosity and passion push me to be a constant learner.

* Pragmatic (adjective): dealing with things sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical rather than theoretical considerations. (Source: Google define)
** Agile Methodology: is a type of project management process and software development methods in which requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams.
