Marco Del Tredici


Hi, I'm a PhD candidate at University of Amsterdamworking at the ILLC with Raquel Fernández.

My research is at the crossroads between Natural Language Processing, Social Network Analysis and Dialogue: in practice, I use Machine Learning techniques (especially Neural Networks and Deep Learning architectures) to investigate how people in social networks create, share and spread the meaning of words. 

I've also been working on text categorization, data mining, sentiment analysis, taxonomies and semantic networks, both during my Academic career and in the NLP industry.
