- Researcher Machine Translation (HLT-MT)
- Machine Translation
- Natural Language Processing
I received my degree in Philosophy of Language from the University of Turin, Italy, in 2000. Since then I have been working as a researcher in FBK – Fondazione Bruno Kessler (former ITC-irst – Center for Scientific and Technological Research), in the Human Language Technology – Machine Translation group.
My research interests cover different areas of natural language processing and machine translation, including:
- Computer-assisted translation, MT and Translation Memories (ACL’16a, ACL’16b, IEEE-TASLP’16, EACL’17a, Machine Translation’17a, Machine Translation’17b)
- Error analysis and automatic post-editing for MT (EMNLP’14, ACL’15d, EACL’17b)
- Quality estimation for MT and ASR (ACL’14, NAACL’15, ACL’15a, ACL’15b, ACL’15c, ACL’16c, Computer Speech & language ’16, Computer Speech and Language’17)
- Crowdsourcing for NLP (EMNLP’11)
- Textual entailment (NAACL’10, ACL’10, ACL’11, ACL’12, ACL’13)
- Question answering (ACL’02, Web Semantics ’11)
I have been involved in the national projects WebFaq (2001-2004), and OntoText (2004-2007) and the EU-funded projects QALL-ME (2006-2009), CoSyne (2010-2013), MateCat (2011-2014), CRACKER (2015-2017), MMT (2015-2017) and QT21 (2015-2017).
I co-authored more than 100 scientific papers, and I regularly serve as program committee member and peer reviewer for national and international conferences and journals.
In the period 2005-2009 I worked as a teaching assistant in several Text Processing courses at the University of Bolzano, and in the Master in Human Language Technology at the University of Trento.
In 2018 I obtained the National Scientific Habilitation as Associate Professor in Computer Science (area 01/B1 – INFORMATICA) and in Information Processing Systems (area 09/H1 – SISTEMI DI ELABORAZIONE DELLE INFORMAZIONI).
