I am a second year PhD student at the Computer Science and Engineer department (DISI) of the University of Bologna. My supervisor is Professor Paolo Torroni.

My PhD is focused on the application of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning techniques to Argumentation Mining and similar Natural Language Processing tasks.

My research interests involve also the investigation of what Deep Networks can achieve by themselves and possible ways to combine symbolic and sub-symbolic techniques. So far, we have conducted our investigation on board games and Constraint Satisfaction Problems.

I've been teaching assistant ("Tutor Didattico") of professors Paola Mello, Federico Chesani, and Paolo Torroni. I am one of the responsible of the Board Game Students Challenge. I am also co-supervisor in some bachelor thesis, masters thesis, and course projects, most of them regarding machine learning application.

I have visited Stanford University during summer 2018, working under the supervision of Margaret Hagan in the context of the MIREL project.
