  • Artificial Intelligence Researcher with computer science engineering background and working experience focusing on development of cutting-edge software solutions leveraging artificial intelligence.

    I graduated in Computer Science Engineering at Tor Vergata University of Rome, specialising in Data Science and Engineering. During my Master’s degree, I acquired knowledge about methodologies on big data management, machine learning and deep learning. In my degree thesis (“A new agent-based NAS (Neural architecture search)”), I focused on NAS techniques capable of automating the network architecture engineering choosing the best configuration.

    Before joining LeonardoLabs, I worked as a Junior Data Scientist in a research foundation in Turin, where I focused on natural language processing (NLP) techniques applied to two European projects. This work experience allowed me to face NLP multilingual problems, thus starting a research work described in the paper “Multilingual Text Classification form Twitter During Emergencies” presented at 2021 ICCE conference [1].

    At LeonardoLabs I am involved in several artificial intelligence research areas, ranging from building knowledge graphs exploiting NLP techniques to applying generative adversarial networks (GANs) for face enhancement problems.

  • Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs):
     – GANs for face enhancement\ problem

    Natural Language Processing:
     – Multilingual language models

    Knowledge Graphs
     – Creation of knowledge graphs from unstructured data (information extraction using NLP) and structured data (data integration from existing sources)
     – Question answering over knowledge graphs
     – Relation extraction
