Prior to joining the university, I completed my Doctorate in NLP/Text Analytics from University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy.

Research projects

I am currently involved in the VISTA AR Project at the Business School. The main goal of this project is to increase visitor numbers to cultural heritage sites in the FCE area. I am dealing with the Text Analytics part of it. I have been analysing visitor feedback collected from different heritage sites and developing domain dependent libraries in order to analyse the sentiments of visitors corresponding to various aspects. The overall goal is to be able to gain insights into visitor experience and use that information to enhance availability of resources at heritage sites.
