About me

Postdoc researcher at the Institute for Logic, Language, and Computation, University of Amsterdam. My focus is on multimodal, cognitively-inspired computational models of language. As such, my work is at the intersection between Computational Linguistics, Computer Vision and Cognitive Science. I'm a proud member of the Dialogue Modelling Group led by Raquel Fernandez.

In 2018, I obtained a PhD in Cognitive and Brain Sciences, track Language, Interaction and Computation, at CIMeC, University of Trento, under the supervision of Raffaella Bernardi. During my PhD, I focused on the learning of quantity expressions from their use in multimodal contexts (see QUANTIT-CLIC).

In 2020, I'm co-Program Chair of EurNLP conference and co-Organizer of LANTERN workshop.

I’d define myself as an enthusiastic, "Let's try!" as my personal motto.
Besides academia, I'm co-founder and artistic director of indievano. I love writing stories.
