I'm a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Dipartimento di Filologia Letteratura e Linguistica of the University of Pisa and a member of the Computational Liguistics Laboratory.
I graduated at the University of Pisa, where I got my bachelor in Informatica Umanistica (2009) with a thesis about automatic classification of event names in Italian and my master degree (2012) in Business Informatics with a thesis focused on the Business Intelligence process, from ETL until the data analysis.
Before starting my doctoral studies in Ingegneria dell'Informazione, I spent two years working in a private company in the field of Business Intelligence.
I got my PhD in 2017 with a dissertation entitled “Distributional Models of Emotions for Sentiment Analysis and Social Media”.
My research is mainly focused on:
- - Emotion Detection and Sentiment Analysis
- - Opinion Mining
- - Information Extraction
- - Business and Competitive Intelligence
Other domains I'm interested in include Text Mining tasks like Information Retrieval and Entity Extraction.
The main Research Project I am involved in is SEMPLICE - SEMantic instruments for PubLIC admnistrators and CitizEns.
It is a 2-year project funded by Regione Toscana aimed at the development of NLP-based tools for knowledge management, information extraction and opinion mining for local public administrations.
This project brings together University of Pisa and Tuscany Companies like 01S, BNova, Seacom.
Memorie di Guerra
The goal of this project is the application of State-of-the-Art NLP techniques to war memories and historical documents, in order to enhance historical research and to preserve the historical memory of these events.
The project involves other research partners like ILC-CNR and University of Siena.
