I am a first year PhD student at the DISI department of the University of Bologna, working on Machine Learning techniques applied to Argumentation Mining, but also to Games and Constraint Satisfaction Problems. My supervisor is Professor Paolo Torroni.

For my Master Thesis, I've applied Deep Neural Networks to a board game, Nine Men's Morris, generating a dataset useful for future Machine Learning work and investigating the ability of the DNNs to learn the rules of a game from scratch. More information about this study are available here.

We have expanded it to the subject of Constraint Satisfaction Problems, to understand whether DNNs can solve problems just by watching some solutions.

For my PhD, I'm studying Argumentation Mining and related topics, working on how to merge symbolic and subsymbolic techniques.

I've been teaching assistant ("Tutor Didattico") of professors Paola Mello and Federico Chesani, and I am co-supervisor in some bachelor thesis, maters thesis, and course projects, most of them regarding machine learning application.
