About me

I'm a researcher working in interdisciplinary projects in Classics (particularly Latin), Digital Scholarly Editing and Natural Language Processing. I've occasionally stepped out of my comfort zone to explore other fields of study, such as visual text analysis, digitisation and stylometry.

I'm fluent in Italian and English, my native languages, and can hold conversations in Spanish and German.
