I am currently the NLP Lab Manager at Laboratorio Sperimentale, a research lab set up at LILEC, University of Bologna and equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software for experimental, computational and applied research in the fields of linguistics, translation and cultural studies. The current Scientific Coordinator of the Lab is prof. Francesca Masini.
My research interests are Computational Construction Grammars, Cognitive Linguistics and Natural Language Processing.
On the side, I am studying to become Italian Sign Language (LIS) interpreter and I would very much like to bring this interest of mine into my research as well.
Everything in life is a work-in-progress, this place especially.
During my PhD I focused on developing a paradigm to evaluate Neural Language Models in a constructionist perspective.
Final thesis: CALaMo: a Construsctionist perspective on the Analysis of linguistic behaviour of Language Models
