I am Research Scientist at IBM Research Ireland since October 2015, working on Cognitive Computing and Natural Language Processing.

Currently, I am Principal Investigator of the Human Behavior change project. a project aimed at creating an AI system for behaviour change intervention predictions.

Since I started in IBM Research AI I have been working in the Project Debater team [video], specifically on sentiment analysis and opinion mining. 

I hold a PhD in Natural Language Processing at the Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), a MSc. in Language Technologies and a B.A. in Digital Humanities from the University of Pisa (Italy).

During my PhD, I concentrated on Information Extraction from dialogues, meetings and debates. Before starting my PhD, I have worked on several research projects between the Institute of Computational Linguistics of the National Research Council of Pisa (Italy) and the Language, Interaction and Computation Laboratory of the University of Trento (Italy), focusing on Information Extraction, Domain Adaptation, Terminology Extraction.

My research interests include Natural Language Processing, Information Extraction, Argumentation Mining, Text mining, Dialogue Processing and Machine Learning.
