NFFA set up the first integrated Information and Data Repository Platform (IDRP) for the nanoscience community. The IDRP infrastructure is intended as an online data catalogue where users can access, share and publish long tail data, becoming a recommended part of the mainstream in nanoscience, also thanks to the integration of the emerging EUDAT service B2SHARE.
This repository aims at recording all relevant metadata for a given nanoscience project, including growth/nanofabrication protocols so that the reproducibility of preparations and experiments will enable to compare complementary data obtained with different methods on valid replica samples and controlled environment conditions. In the current test-phase the repository will provide an advanced service to store all data produced at NFFA-Trieste facilities. The generic service stack provides enough flexibility to support various scientific communities and user types in a modular and extensible way.
I am a development scientist at CNR/IOM with more than 15 years experience in scientific computing area and HPC computational e-infrastructures. I am currently coordinating a team that is maintaining cutting-edge HPC, GRID and CLOUD infrastructures and deliver high level computing services for CNR/IOM. From January 2014 I am coordinator of Master in High Performance Computing promoted by SISSA and ICTP (www.mhpc.it).
I am responsible for NFFA-Trieste proposals management and I assist the users in the use of NFFA data storage tools.
My work relies on data acquisition software development for the APE laboratory at Elettra Synchrotron. My development skills includes Labview, C, C++, Delphi and Java. I also developed the acquisition software at Tempo Beamline at Soleil Synchrotron (France) My closest interests are: Developing ad-hoc data acquisition software, Integration of third party data acquisition software, Software development and data management for time resolved experiments.
