About me

A picture of me

I am a second-year PhD student at the Social Robotics Lab, Uppsala University. I obtained my Master’s in Machine Learning at KTH, Sweden in 2022. My master’s thesis was in the field of social robotics where I explored the incorporation of emotions and personality into a conversational social agent. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science with honours at the University of Pisa, Italy. My bachelor’s thesis investigated the use of whole positive numbers in the traditional switching theory with applications e.g. in the field of data mining.




At Uppsala University I’ve been a teaching assistant in the course “Intelligent Interactive Systems” since 08/2022.

At KTH I’ve been a teaching assistant in the master-level courses: “Artificial Intelligence” from 12/2020 to 06/2022, “Deep learning in Data Science” from 03/2022 to 06/2022 and “Search Engines and Information Retrieval Systems” from 01/2022 to 06/2022.
