I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Pisa and member of the ItaliaNLP Lab (ILC-CNR). In 2017, I received my MS degree in Digital Humanities 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.
