PostDoc in Natural Language Processing

ItaliaNLP Lab (ILC-CNR)


I am a PostDoc at the ItaliaNLP Lab (ILC-CNR), Institute for Computational Linguistics (ILC-CNR). In 2022, I received my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Pisa.

My research interests lie primarily in the context of Natural Language Processing. I am particularly interested in the analysis and the definition of methods for inferring and evaluating representations from data, as well as in the development of NLP tools for building educational applications.

In my free time I watch movies, listen to music and read books.
