I am a PhD student in Information Engineering at the University of Siena and my advisor is Prof. Franco Scarselli.
My research activity is focused on Machine Learning and Computer Vision.
I obtained my Master Degree in Computer Engineering in 2014, since then I have been involved in projects related to Image Processing and Machine Learning.
I studied systems for the automatic interpretation of biomedical images, then I worked on automatic documents analysis with the purpose of automatically localize and recognize texts displayed in everyday documents, like identity cards, health insurance cards, driving licenses, etc.. From November 2016, I have been enrolled in the PhD program in Information Engineering at the University of Siena. My main research topics are object detection, semantic and instance segmentation, semi-supervised and deep learning. From a more practical point of view, I am currently working on text detection and recognition in natural and cluttered images. I also have an interest in Artificial Intelligence in general.
