I’m the head of the Human Language Technology Machine Translation group at Fondazione Bruno Kessler.
I got my Phd at the University of Siena, Italy, on “Computer Engineering, adaptive information processing”. During my Phd studies, I was visiting student at the University of California Davis, Statistical Department, and intern at the Yahoo Research Lab.
Before moving to the FBK, I have had the pleasure of working for the European Commission Joint Research Centre, IPSC, Optima action in Ispra, Italy.
