Short bio

I am a PhD Student in Human Language Technologies group at Fondazione Bruno Kessler partnership with the Doctoral School in Linguistics of University of Bergamo and University of Pavia.
Before starting my PhD I have collaborated as linguistic annotator in several projects within the HLT group. In particular, I have helped in developing the linguistic resource T-Pas, in collaboration with the Dept. of Humanities of the University of Pavia.

My research is focused on the study of opposition relations and contrast relations at textual level. Through a crowd-sourcing experiment, I bring evidences that i) opposition relations exist between senses of verbs, and ii) there exist different types of opposition relations with different characteristics. Moreover, I focused on contrast relations at textual level that can be either marked by textual connectives or implicitly conveyed. In particular, I aim at creating an exhaustive list of the textual connectives for contrast relations in Italian, and by analysing corpora I am studying the relation between lexical opposition and contrast marked by an explicit connective at textual level. I mainly investigate these relations in the Italian language, using and developing lexical resources such as the T-PAS resource and the LICO resource.
