My name is Andrea Vaccari and I am a Product Manager at Facebook. Previously I was the Cofounder and CEO of Glancee, an app that made it easy to meet nearby people with mutual friends and similar interests. Glancee was acquired by Facebook in 2012. Before that I briefly worked at Google, building internal tools for Google Maps.
I also spent a lot of time in academia. I attended Politecnico di Milano in Italy and University of Illinois in Chicago. I have done research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Santa Fe Institute. My work has been exhibited at the MoMA in New York City and the Design Museum in Barcelona.
