Yanuca Island, Cuvu, Fiji, 2019, before presenting “Towards understanding classification and identification” at the 16th Pacific Rim International Conference on Artificial Intelligence.

I am currently Postdoctoral Research Fellow, member of the CORE: Conceptual and Cognitive Modelling Research Group, at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, and I am collaborating with the Knowdive Group at the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Trento, where I was (from 2015 to 2019) also teaching assistant for the Mathematical Logics and Knowledge-Data Integration courses.

I have a Master’s Degree in Philosophy and a Ph.D. in Computer Science. My research concerns primarily Artificial Intelligence, with a particular focus on the combinations between Knowledge Representation and Machine Learning techniques, Computational Semantics, and Data Analytics. Other research interests include Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Logic, and Philosophy of Information.
