Ciao! I am Alessandro Chiarelli, aka alexcarchiar but I also have a Chinese name, which is 瑞利. I am currently working at List SPA in Turin as a Software Engineer. I hold a SECCLO Master degree in Computer Science with a Major in Cryptography and a Bachelor degree in Computer Engineering. I have studied abroad and moved multiple times, see my education section!
I am Italian originally but I am also familiar with other cultures, in particular the ones of the countries I’ve lived in: France, Spain, China, Finland and Estonia. My first international experience was in high school in France, thanks to AFS. When I started university I moved to Turin where I stayed for a year before moving to China. I stayed there just before the Covid-19 pandemic after which I moved back to Italy. I graduated from my bachelor’s degree in July 2021 and after that I moved to Finland for my first semester of my Master’s degree. I stayed in Finland for only 7 months since I got an internship in Amazon Spain. I left Spain for Estonia for the final year of my Master’s degree. Now I am back to Turin as a software engineer for List, in a position that allows me to merge my passion for finance and computers, as I work with financial institutions.
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. My master thesis was about blockchain oracles and their security, in particular for non-financial applications.
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.
