Short bio

I got both my bachelor’s and master’s degree in Humanities Computing at the University of Pisa thus my academic background gave me the possibility to acquire interdisciplinary skills. In April 2018 I obtained a PhD in Information Technologies at the ICT doctoral school of the University of Trento, with a thesis on event detection and classification for the Digital Humanities.

After an internship in Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa) dedicated to the digitization of Renaissance books and another internship at Philips (Eindhoven) working as linguistics consultant, in 2005 I moved to Trento becoming involved in Human Language Technologies projects and researches at CELCT. In that context, I have had the opportunity to deepen my understanding of corpus creation and annotation, semantic annotation of texts, and use of crowdsourcing techniques.

Since 2013, I work in the group dedicated to Digital Humanities at Fondazione Bruno Kessler: my research is focused on how computational methods and technologies can be applied to the treatment of cultural content, in particular of historical texts.
