Bio

Background. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in literature (with a focus on history) and a Master’s Degree in contemporary history. I wrote both my dissertations on digital history topics at the University of Bologna, under the supervision of Prof. Francesca Tomasi.

PhD at Unibo. I hold a Ph.D. in History of Technology, from the International Centre for the History of Universities and Science, University of Bologna. I conducted my research under the supervision of Prof. Maurizio Matteuzzi and Prof. Simone Paolo Ponzetto. In my dissertation, I investigated how to combine web archive materials and natural language processing methods for getting new perspectives on the recent past of academic institutions.

Post-Doc at DWS. Since June 2017, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Data and Web Science Group of the University of Mannheim, working with Laura Dietz and Nikolay Marinov. In the next two years, I will study how to use advanced information retrieval techniques for supporting political science research tasks.
