Research and Education

I joined the UT after obtaining my PhD in 2018 from the University of Trento (Italy) and the FBK-irst research institute. My background is in Natural Language Processing, but I have also studied Human Computer Interaction and Cognitive Psychology.

I'm currently teaching in multiple Bachelor and Master courses, for the TCS, BIT, CS and I-TECH programmes.

My research focus is natural language processing (NLP) and generation (NLG). I'm particularly interested in computational creativity, NLP/NLG for videogames, sentiment and emotion analysis, and using NLP for detecting moral values


Confidential advisor

I believe the University should be a welcoming, positive and safe place for everyone, but sadly this does not always happen. This is why I also am a confidential advisor at the UT.

If you are facing unwanted behavior (intimidation, (sexual) harassment, aggression, violence, discrimination, bullying or stalking) on the workplace or related to your work, you're welcome to come talk to me, or to one of my colleagues.

I will listen to you and trust you. Our conversations will be completely confidential, I will not take any action without your consent, and we can reason toghether about possible solutions.

To get in contact with me, you can call me on my work number or send me an email (consider using the non-UT-managed address for extra privacy) and we'll agree on where and when to meet discreetly.

If the perpetrator of the unwanted behavior is a member of the HMI or MST groups, please contact another confidential advisor, as I could face a conflict of interest.
