Hi there!

I am a PhD Student in Data Science, under the supervision of Prof. Davide Bacciu.
I am a member of the Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning (CIML) group at University of Pisa.
I am Chief Scientist at ContinualAI, a non-profit research organization and an open community of Continual/Lifelong Learning researchers and enthusiasts. I am the Principal Maintainer of ContinualAI wiki, in which you can find information about conferences, research projects and news on Continual Learning. Plus, a curated list of annotated papers.

My research focuses on Continual Learning, with applications to Recurrent Neural Networks models and sequential data processing.
