I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, KU Leuven, where I am part of the Declarative Languages and Artificial Intelligence (DTAI) research group. I was an FWO Post-Doc Fellow on the project “Deep Statistical Relational Learning”. I obtained my PhD at the University of Florence, Italy, in 2020 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Marco Gori. During my PhD, I was a visiting student at KU Leuven, Belgium, and CTU Prague, Czech Republic. I obtained both the Bachelor and Master degrees in ICT Engineering at the University Mediterranea of Reggio Calabria, Italy.
My research interests are about the integration between neural computation and relational reasoning, with a particular focus on logical and probabilistic reasoning. Moreover, I am interested in the intersections of neural symbolic with Graph Neural Networks and Natural Language Processing.
