Gianluca is an expert in protein crystallography data collection and analysis. After a PhD in structure-based drug design, he has worked as a postdoc on the beamline ID23-1 at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and has developed the SSX data analysis software ccCluster. His current interests are the optimization of data collection strategies for multi-crystal data collection and the automatization of data processing.
Gianluca is also the scientific coordinator for the ISPyB project, aimed at giving access to experimental metadata and autoprocessing results to users of synchrotron lightsources.
He's taking to this project his expertise in data mining and analysis, and his sense of humor.
