I am a Google Doctoral Fellow and third-year PhD student at the Linguistic Computing Laboratory (LCL) of Sapienza University of Rome. Previously I worked as a research engineer at ATILF-CNRS in France. My background education includes a Erasmus Mundus Master in Natural Language Processing and Human Language Technology and a 5-year BSc degree in Mathematics.
I work on various topics in Natural Language Processing (NLP), mainly on the lexical and distributional semantics areas. Currently I work on leveraging knowledge resources for improving NLP applications, with a special focus on multilinguality and ambiguity. To this end, I have been collaborating on the BabelNet project and developing knowledge-based sense vector representations (e.g. NASARI and SW2V) to be used as a bridge between lexical resources and text-based applications. We have organized a tutorial at ACL 2016 and a workshop at EACL 2017 on this topic.
I strongly believe that well-curated datasets and resources, as well as shared tasks, are key for advancing science. This year I'm co-organizing two SemEval 2018 tasks, on Hypernym Discovery and Emoji Prediction. Check them out!
NLP aside, I love travelling and sports. I was raised in Granada, a wonderful city in the south of Spain where I spent the first 20 years of my life. Then, I have been living in large European cities like Paris, Barcelona and Rome, and spent long amounts of time in Seoul. I have also lived in other smaller (but equally charming) cities: Nancy and Besançon (France) and Wolverhampton (UK). I like practising all kinds of sports: football, swimming, tennis, padel, ping pong... and chess (yes, it is also a sport!). I hold the International Master chess title and am currently the top-rated chess player of South Korea.
