Giuseppe Broccolo


PostgreSQL DBA at 2ndQuadrant Italia

Giuseppe started his computer technician career as C/C++ developer in Linux/Unix systems, he applied them to computing & simulations in particle physics for many years in his research activity. During this time, his interest in machine learning techniques used for particle identification grew.

In addition to research, he enhanced his computer skills working on GIS application development for GPS tracking and LiDAR surveying, commencing work with databases, in particular PostgreSQL and its spatial extension, PostGIS.

Giuseppe holds a PhD in Physics and won a fellowship at “Scuola Normale Superiore” in Pisa, Tuscany. He worked with CERN in Geneva during his research activities.

Currently, he lives in Prato and away from his desktop, he loves to lift weights and race with his superbike.
