“I’m Winston Wolf. I solve Problems.” (and try to prove Theorems)
Who am I?
Matteo Riondato was born in Padova (Padua), in the foggy northern Italy, in 1986. After having spent his youth playing with LEGOs and other nerdish games, he was introduced to computers, and have never left them since he was 14.
He got a B.Sc. (Laurea) in Information Engineering from the University of Padua (Italy) and a M.Sc. (Laurea Magistrale) in Computer Engineering from the same Institution. He is now a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Brown University (Providence, RI) under the supervision of Prof. Eli Upfal. See also his academic page. His Erdös number is 3.
UNIX lover since the very beginning of his computer interest, he is part of the FreeBSD community as a developer with write privileges on the main source tree (a.k.a. src committer). He was one of the FreeSBIE developers and the release engineer for the FreeSBIE-2.X series (R.I.P. FreeSBIE). Nowadays, he focuses more on solving bugs: like Pulp Fiction’s Mister Wolf, he enjoys solving Problems (or better, Problem Reports a.k.a. PRs).
Just in case you wonder…
My web page at Brown, mainly academia-related.
Silvio Riondato, my father, in Italian
Ezio Riondato, my grandfather, in Italian
My web page at FreeBSD, should be almost the exact copy of the academic page
