About me

Postdoctoral 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 part of the DREAM (Distributed dynamic REpresentations for diAlogue Management) ERC project and proud 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.
