Who is who in the FairWind Team.

The winning team is lead by a leader, not a commander.

Steering board.

Raffaele Montella, PhD – Assistant professor in Computer Science at the DiST, mHPSC technical investigator, with strong international cooperations mainly with the Computation Institute of the University of Chicago (now as visiting professor). He sails since he was a kid, he is a sail racer since he was a boy and he develops software since he was just 11 (and he was born in 1972)… as a scientist he loves to mix things; as a sailor he loves when things clockwork. He had the idea of BApps, boat apps, in the autumn 2011 in Chicago, while a productive conversation with Ian Foster, huge scientist and sailor.
