About Me

I am a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Roberto Capobianco in Ro.Co.Co. Lab at Department of Computer, Control, and Management Engineering “Antonio Ruberti” of Sapienza University. Currently, I am a member of Knowledge, Reasoning and Learning research group .

I am a continuous learner that loves learning new concepts, also from domains and fields different from mine - psychology, astronomy and neuroscience.

My area of interest is eXplainable Artifificial Intelligence (XAI); in particular I am most interested in research that explains the behavior of black box models (e.g. Deep Neural Networks) combining tools from different areas of Machine Learning. I am deeply interested on the connection between memory, learning process and interpretability from both computational and cognitive perspectives. Image of a black box behavior
My latest works focus on explainability for the Memory Augmented Neural Networks and commonsense reasoning.

I have a background in computer science and Artificial Intelligence, having a M. Sc. degree in “Artificial Intelligence and Robotics” and a B. Sc. in “Computer Science”, both from the Sapienza University.
During my master thesis I studied the problem of getting explainability on sequential tasks supervised by Prof. Roberto Capobianco. Previously I obtained by Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at Sapienza University, under the supervision of Prof. Roberto Navigli and the help of Natural Language Proccesing Group. In 2016 I collaborated with CINI to merge two semantics knowledge graphs.
