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 received my MSc in computer science cum laude from the University of Trento.
My research interests include transfer learning, language variation, bias and fairness in NLP. More broadly, I’m interested in making NLP models robust and more fairly applicable to social science problems. Currently, I am working on countering hate speech on social media in multiple languages in the context of the EU-funded Protector project.
