    Machine Learning / Statistical Analysis needed.
    Fantastic (again). If only all the contractors on odesk were this good. Luca gives me faith in finding good people on odesk and in the future of the Italian economy. His skills match his communication, which I find to be excellent. I would have to struggle to find fault with the interaction. It has been positive in every way after two long-ish jobs. The whole process takes longer than I would like, but 1) This is not Luca's full-time job; and 2) I am unprepared to pay unlimited amounts on EC2. He has always been in communication about the timing and best guess toward completion. My experience in working with Luca is that he knows his statistics as well as anyone, can code to the appropriate level of proficiency, and communicates with a clarity and responsiveness that is rare.
