Hi! My name is Laura.

I am a programmer enthusiastic about functional reactive coding. I mostly write Scala, though I really admire O'Caml as well. I know a bit about recommender systems, statistics and math. Apart from programming, I like rock climbing and trail running. I did my BSc in Financial and Actuarial Mathematics in Vinius University, where with several friends I wrote a thesis about The Role of Tail Index in Analysis of Currency Returns. After that I shifted gears and started programming. I have done my MSc in Computer Science at the Free University of Bozen - Bolzano where I wrote a thesis about Pairwise Preferences in Collaborative Filtering. Recently, I spent three months at Hacker School in New York and I totally enjoyed it.
