My contributions go to the development of AI systems in the field of Fake news/Disinformation ...
Machine Learning/Deep Learning: Classical Algorithms (e.g., SVM, RF) to Deep Neural Network to solve supervised and semi-supervised problems.
Applicative Contexts: Natural Language Processing, Behavioral and Social Signal Processing (Emotion, Personality traits) from Speech and Text; Social Media Text Analysis.
Short Bio: Currently working for QCRI, Qatar, as a Scientist. I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Trento, under the supervision of Prof. Giuseppe Riccardi, master's from the same department, and undergrad from BRAC University.
My interview with Sage:
