Designed especially for neurobiologists, FluoRender is an interactive tool for multi-channel fluorescence microscopy data visualization and analysis.
Deep brain stimulation
BrainStimulator is a set of networks that are used in SCIRun to perform simulations of brain stimulation such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and magnetic transcranial stimulation (TMS).
Developing software tools for science has always been a central vision of the SCI Institute.

supervisor Dr. Valerio Pascucci


I received my M.S. and B.E. in computer engineering and my Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. My research activity started in the defence industry working on network centric multi-sensor data analysis and General Purpose computing on GPUs. During my PhD, I joined the team of Prof. Valerio Pascucci at the SCI Institute and continued my research in high performance computing and large scale data analytics as a research scholar and later as a PostDoctoral fellow.

Current Responsibilities

I am working on large scale scientific analysis applications in several domain such as neuroscience, materials science, chemical and mechanical engineering.

Research Interests

My research has been focused on high-performance computing with applications on dynamic runtime system, parallel I/O, data streaming visualization and large scale data analytics such as topological feature extraction and distributed rendering.
