Hi! My name is Diego and I’m a software engineer with academic experience in information retrieval and machine learning.

Since 2015, I have been working for Bloomberg. I spent several years working on search & ranking financial news and I currently lead a team in the AI group.

I enjoy contributing to open source in my spare time:

In 2016, I contributed to the release of the Learning to Rank module of Apache Solr. I also gave several talks explainining how learning to rank works, how to use the Apache Solr module, and problems that we faced at work when we released learning to rank in production.

When I’m in the mood I mantain json-wikipedia, a library to convert Wikipedia xml dumps into a json/avro semistructured format.
