I’m a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Bologna, Italy (supervisor: Davide Maltoni) and Co-Founding President of ContinualAI, a non-profit research organization and the largest open community on Continual Learning for AI. Currently, I’m also a Co-founder and Board Member of AI for People, Director of the ContinualAI Lab and a proud member of the European Lab for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS).
I obtained my PhD at UniBo in early 2019 with a dissertation titled “Continual Learning with Deep Architectures” (on a topic I’ve been working on for more than 7 years now) which was recognized as one of the top-5 AI dissertation of 2019 by the Italian Associacion for Artificial Intelligence.
For more than 5 years I have been working as a teaching assistant for the Machine Learning and Computer Architectures courses in the Department of Computer Science of Engineering (DISI). In the past I’ve been a Visiting Research Scientist at AI Labs (supervisor: Fabio Cuzzolin) in 2020, Numenta (supervisor: Jeff Hawkins) in 2019, at ENSTA ParisTech (supervisor: David Filliat) in 2018 and at Purdue University (supervisor: Eugenio Culurciello) in 2017. Even before, I was a Machine Learning Software Engineer @ iDL in-line Devices and a Master Student @ UniBo.
My main research interest and passion is about Continual Learning in all its facets. In particular, I love to study Continual Learning under three main lights: Neuroscience, Deep Learning and Practical Applications, all within a AI Sustainability developmental framework.
