I am currently working at CambridgeSoft as Director of Major Accounts with a project management role on customer implementation projects as well. I have been working in scientific applications management for two years and in computational chemistry for nearly nine years, first as a co-op student at the University of Ferrara, then briefly as a consultant for S-In Soluzioni Informatiche and finally as a researcher at NiKem. At NiKem I had the leadership of the computational chemistry and chemoinformatic laboratory and took an active role in the development and maintenance of the corporate scientific informatics platform. During last eight years I mainly developed my skills in analogue- and structure-based design, in chemoinformatic as well as in corporate informatics. I have a flair for developing strong and productive workgroup interactions and a passion for finding the simplest solution to complex problems.
