About me

Researcher in Natural Language Processing. Ex-FAIR (Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research), Meta’s fundamental research org. PhD alumnus of SapienzaNLP (supervisor prof. Roberto Navigli).

Trying to teach human language(s) to machines, one failure at a time. In my free time I like to pretend that I have free time.

Interested in: Natural Language Processing (NLP), Natural Language Generation, Information Retrieval, Lexical Semantics, Word Sense Disambiguation, Semantic Parsing
