About me

Assistant Professor in Responsible AI at the Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam. My work is at the intersection between Natural Language Processing, AI and Cognitive Science.

Before, I was a Postdoc within the DREAM (Distributed dynamic REpresentations for diAlogue Management) ERC project and member of the Dialogue Modelling Group led by Raquel Fernández.

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). I was intern at SAP AI Research.

In 2021, I'm Program co-Chair of EurNLP, co-Organizer of LANTERN at EACL and co-Editor of a Frontiers Special Issue on Language and Vision.

I'm an enthusiastic. "Let's try!" is my personal motto.
