About Me

I obtained my PhD in 2018 from the University of Trento (Italy), under the supervision of Prof. Oliviero Stock and funded by FBK-irst. My research topic was natural language processing for computational creativity, sentiment and emotion analysis.

My current research interests involve natural language generation and affective language.
