PhD supervisor: Prof. Andrea Passerini

I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the ICT doctoral school (31th cycle).
I closely cooperate with the Telecom Italia SKIL Lab at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK).

Research

My current research work is focused on machine learning and artificial intelligence. In particular, my PhD thesis is about "constructive recommendation", which is the task of recommending novel objects by creating them from scratch. This research work spans through several areas of machine learning such as online learning, preference elicitation, structured output prediction and recommendation systems. Other research areas I am interested in are statistical relational learning, reinforcement learning, convex optimization and other artificial intelligence fields such as constraint programming, information retrieval and natural language processing.

About

I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Trento since November 2015. I graduated at Sapienza University of Rome in October 2015. I hold a Master's degree in Engineering in Computer Science. My background focuses mostly on various aspects of AI such as Machine Learning, Knowledge Representation, Constraint Programming, Planning. I worked on my master's thesis at the University of Oslo. The topic of the thesis was Natural Language Processing, more specifically it was about semantics of dialogue and dialogue systems. Among other experiences, I studied for one semester at the University of Melbourne (Australia) and worked in the IT sector as a software engineer.
