Ciao! I am Alessandro Chiarelli, aka alexcarchiar but I also have a Chinese name, which is 瑞利. I am currently working at Amazon in Barcelona as a SDE Intern. I am a SECCLO student at the universities of Aalto and Tartu, working yo get a Master’s degree in Cybersecurity and Cloud computing focusing on cryptography. My bachelor is from Politecnico di Torino in Computer Engineering.
I am Italian but I am also familiar with both French and Chinese culture since I lived in France during High School and China during college. After that I moved to Finland for seven months for my first semester of my Master’s degree and I am moving to Estonia in September for the final year. Now I’m living in Spain as I am interning at Amazon for six months where I work for the Barcelona Machine learning team. People say I am a global citizen, and that’s something I definitely like. I love Computer Science and technology in general, I read a lot about these topics as well as economics. My curiosity is probably my greatest asset since it also gives me the will to learn and grow every day.
I am a cryptoenthusiast and investor, both in crypto and non-crypto assets. I co-founded the students’ association “BIT PoliTO” at my former university which focuses on spreading knowledge about cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.
I am always looking forward to new challenges, so if you have any… don’t hesitate to contact me!

These are just a few things I’ve been working on
I am building a Bank Management System to improve my software engineering skills and how to have a better understanding of the bankig system.
I’ve taken part to a newly founded students’ team at my university. BIT PoliTO’s goals are to spread knowledge about Bitcoin and blockchain and develop new technologies. I work as a Digital Marketer and as a Developer.
While working at Blue Reply as an Intern engineer, I researched the FIDO protocol for passwordless and/or multifactor authentication. I prepared an extensive document detailing how it works, how it can be implemented by different services and how it relates to the EBA’s PSD2 regulation.
I spend part of my spare time studying the best techniques to earn money through investments and I already have a few, both in fiat and crypto. I recently started studying crypto and this is what I am most interested about right now, that’s why I am taking part into a students’ association for crypto currencies and blockchain.
I bought a Raspberry Pi 4 and used it to create my server that I use to host local website in my own network. I mainly use that server for my research purposes and to test my website before I upload my pages onto my web-hosting platform.
TelegramBlaster is a small python script that I created for my students’ team in order to send telegram messages to all contacts in a csv form. Customize it as you wish!
This website is also a project of mine, made with Hugo and Academic. To be honest, though, I must credit my colleague and dear friend lorcalhost for inspiration. Check him out too!
I love to travel and I have already been to more than 10 countries. I have lived in four different places, three countries and two continents so far. My goal is to be able to visit every country.
I’ve taken part to a few projects on YouTube, with the main ones being my own channel and the first two educational videos on JAES company’s YouTube channel. To be fair, though, I have never been consistent in making YouTube content and I have always been more keen on the underlying technologies that make such a platform possible.
