I started out as a developer, but in 1999 I decided that I needed a new challenge since I wanted to grow as a professional. I was advised to look into the market of Shareware and so I quit all my jobs and started Oxygen Software. Soon after, my friend Oleg Davydov joined me and we began to try different software markets.
That was the time of the “Matrix” cult movie. Do you remember the phones used by the actors? They were custom ones, but very similar to the Nokia 7110. It was a revolutionary device, the first phone that was able to store several phone fields for every contact and had advanced calendar features. more ...
I am a forensic criminologist and I noticed that digital forensics (the topic of my PhD) is not a subject at the moment in the Masters I was following. I’ve always had an interest in computers so I contacted a company (Fox-IT) in Holland that handles digital forensic investigations and asked if they would be willing to let me have an internship to learn more about the field. They said I could and I worked there one day every week for 8 months next to my other fulltime internship and learned a lot. more ...
Amped Software was derived from my master thesis of Electronic Engineering at the University of Trieste, Italy, in 2005. The thesis was done in cooperation with the Scientific Investigation Department of Carabinieri (Italian Military Police) in Parma; this is probably the most well known forensic lab in Italy, thanks also to an Italian CSI style TV show. Usually in academia, you always work in simulated situations created ad hoc in the lab, but from the very beginning, I worked on real footage coming from CCTV (closed-circuit television) cameras. more ...
It’s basically using laser scanning within all sorts of contexts. The London bombings was probably one of the first main jobs it was used on, as well as the Princess Diana inquest, and similar cases. Probably most murders that you see now in London have been laser scanned and captured in this way.
A lot of it you don’t actually see in the final product because we’ve got to go with whatever’s simplest for a jury to understand. Three years ago, we were laser scanning everything, but you weren’t seeing anything in court. What’s happened since then is we’ve started to realise that jurors need to see things in three dimensions, because it’s the best way that they can understand the world. more ...
Even though I’ve been at Nuix for seven months now, it still feels new and every day I discover something different. The most important part of my job is applying my experience as a training provider, which I’ve done for the past 10 years, to make sure Nuix represents its products as well in the training arena as it does in the functional arena. It’s about applying a professional adult learning model to the organisation so customers come away with a good experience of the software and gain knowledge of how to use it to best effect. more ...
