Gianluca Bergami, Data Engineer

As a prospective Doctor of Hydrology, Gianluca Bergami applied for a job with us as part of a career change. He was nonetheless quickly able to contribute his specialist knowledge effectively in his role as a data engineer. Since then his area of responsibility has included adapting the modelling of the extra-high-voltage grid, for which he works with complex programs that simplify and automate the preparation and validation of the grid model and save a great deal of time. This produces large quantities of data, which Gianluca checks, optimises and homogenises. Gianluca is also his department’s training supervisor, and as such, he makes an important contribution to ensuring that Swissgrid employees can continue to deliver top quality and reliability.

His most important tasks include coordination among the individual project participants and communication to the project stakeholders; his goal is always to deliver promptly, within the set budget and with the desired quality. In addition to project management, regularly contributing his specialist knowledge is important for Pierre-Yves.
