I obtained my PhD at the Language, Interaction and Computation Lab at the University of Trento. My research is in the areas of natural language processing, computer vision and machine learning. In the past, I extracted distributional semantic models from pictures and merged them with traditional text-based semantic representations.
At ILLC I am building neural conversational agents that learn via visual games. Together with Dieuwke Hupkes, I am also coordinating i-machine-think, a project about compositionality in neural networks.
