I am Assistant Professor working on natural language processing at Bocconi University. I obtained my PhD in 2018 in Computer Science at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy. My work focuses on ethics, more specifically on abusive language detection.
I have recently been awarded a grant from Fondazione Cariplo for my project MONICA, which will focus on monitoring coverage, attitudes, and accessibility of Italian measures in response to COVID-19.
My research interests mainly focus on Natural Language Processing, specifically on the detection and counter-acting of hate speech and algorithmic bias on Social Media data in multilingual context. I organized three international shared tasks on multilingual detection of hate speech.
