Short bio

I received my “Laurea” Degree in Philosophy of Language in 1999 at the University of Bologna. Since then, I have been working as a researcher at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (formerly ITC-irst). From October 2008 to December 2013 I was part-time assigned to the Centre for the Evaluation of Language and Communication Technologies (CELCT), first as a research manager with the role of coordinating the activities of the Centre (2008-2012), then as Director of the Centre (2012-2013).

I have been involved in the EU-funded projects Excitement (2012-2014), MateCat (2014), MosesCore (2014), EU-Bridge (2012-2014), FlareNet (2008-2011), MEANING (2002-2005) and in projects funded by the Autonomous Province of Trento, including LiveMemories (2008-2011), OntoText (2004-2007), WebFaq (2001-2004).

My research interests encompass evaluation of human language technologies, crowdsourcing for NLP, corpus creation and annotation, computational lexicography in a multilingual environment. I co-authored more than 50 scientific publications and have served as reviewer for conferences and workshops. I have been involved in the organization of different tasks in several evaluation campaigns (e.g. RTE, IWSLT, SemEval, EVALITA) and other international events (MT Marathon 2014).
