I’m a PhD student at Umeå University. I took my Master in Computer Science and Engineering in Politecnico di Milano, Italy. I’m currently studying Natural Language Processing in the context of Human Robot Interaction, more in particular I’m interested in semantics and their role in robotic systems. Is the system shaped by its semantics, or are the semantics that get shaped by the system? Being from Italy I’ve also some nice skills in cooking pasta and pizza, I also play the electric bass and I’m currently looking for a band. I like board games and playing strategy games on the pc. I’m also interested in psychology and especially in the interpretation of dreams.
