About me

My name is Matteo Capucci, I'm 18 years old, and I'm currently attending the faculty of mathematics at University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, in Modena, Italy.
I'm fond of science, beauty and tasty food.

Since my childhood I explored the realms of informatics, mathematics and physics, and I still enjoy learning, discussion and intellectual challenges.
In the last six years, after I got in touch with desktop programming, I taught myself web design and web development, ending up playing with the most recent technologies (HTML5, Node.js, ...) but starting from a more classic background such as PHP and Apache.

My skills are mainly self-taught, through the study of manuals, online tutorials and articles, talks and lectures. As of today, I'm capable of both front-end and back-end design and development, with a wide range of tools, yet I'm still widening my knowledge and exploring new ways of coding and design: in every project, I learn something new.

Anyway, the pure disciplines remain my greatest intellectual passion: I'm fascinated by mathematics, informatics and many other areas of science.

In 2014 I followed the famous Andrew Ng's course on Machine Learning on Coursera and I fell in love with the subject. As of now, I want to pursue a career in the field, hopefully combining it with my fondness of web design and development.

During high school years, I regularly partecipated to school competitions, often reaching the final stages at a national or regional level, which testifies my eagerness to problem solving.
In both 2013 and 2014 I was a national finalist at the Italian Olympics of Informatics, eventually being awarded with a bronze medal. From 2013 to 2015 I competed with my school team to the Olympics of Mathematics, reaching the national final and ranking above every other team from Emilia-Romagna.

The same year (2014) I also attended the ESA's CAN SAT European competition, in And√łya, Norway.

In 2015 I graduated at ISS F. Corni with the highest honours (100/100).

I'm currently attending the faculty of mathematics at University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
