About me

I work as a post-doc (Marie Curie fellow) at the CLIC group of CIMeC (University of Trento). 

My main research area is Computational Linguistics (aka Natural Language Processing). I am interested in semantics, or how meaning works in natural languages. I work with computational models (distributional semantics, neural networks) that are able to induce very rich and flexible semantic representations directly from examples of how people use language. Topics I am currently working on are anchoring meaning representations to the external world (reference) and seeing what the implications of computational modelling results in my field are for semantic theory.
