I got both my bachelor’s and master’s degree in Humanities Computing at the University of Pisa thus my academic background gave me the possibility to acquire interdisciplinary skills. In April 2018 I obtained a PhD in Information Technologies at the ICT doctoral school of the University of Trento, with a thesis on event detection and classification for the Digital Humanities.

After an internship in Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa) dedicated to the digitization of Renaissance books and another internship at Philips (Eindhoven, The Netherlands) working as linguistics consultant, in 2005 I moved to Trento becoming involved in Human Language Technologies projects and researches at CELCT. In that context, I have had the opportunity to deepen my understanding of corpus creation and annotation, semantic annotation of texts, evaluation of NLP tools and use of crowdsourcing techniques.

From 2013 and 2018, I worked in the group dedicated to Digital Humanities at Fondazione Bruno Kessler: my research focused on how computational methods and technologies can be applied to the treatment of cultural content, in particular of historical texts. From 2019 and 2021, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan, working in the ERC project “LiLa: Linking Latin”.

I'm part of the board of AIUCD (the Italian association for the Digital Humanities) and social media manager of AILC (the Italian association of computational linguistics).
