Università di Pisa


I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Pisa, under the supervision of Davide Bacciu. I am also a member of the Computational intelligence and Machine Learning group ( CIML). My research interests are focused around the study and understanding of recurrent neural networks and memorization models, including hierarchical recurrent models, memory-augmented architectures and applications to continual learning.

Summer Internship

CERN Openlab

Jul 2017 – Aug 2017 Geneva, Switzerland
Summer internship at the CERN Openlab, sponsored by Intel. The objective of the project was the evaluation of machine learning models to speed up the track reconstruction process of the CMS HLT. My main contribution was the evaluation of several convolutional neural network architectures considering their classification accuracy and the inference time using different software frameworks (Tensorflow, Caffe) and hardware (manycore, GPU, custom FPGA) architectures.
