    Short bio

    I am a postdoctoral researcher in natural language processing (NLP) at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), Italy, where I am part of the Digital Humanities (DH) research unit.

    Previously, I was a visiting researcher in the NLPnorth group at the IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark. I earned my Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Trento, Italy, working as a research assistant at the Microsoft Research Cosbi centre. Prior to that, I completed my M.Sc. in computer science cum laude at the University of Trento.

    My research aims at robust, fair, and inclusive language technology by accounting for language variation across many dimensions (e.g., languages, dialects, domains, social factors). More broadly, I’m interested in making NLP more fairly applicable to humanities and social science problems. Currently, I am involved in the following EU-funded projects: AI4TRUST (H2020), HYBRIDS (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Doctoral Network), and UNIDIVE (COST Action).
