Howdy visitor, I’m Emanuele (/emanu’ɛle/), a Marie Curie PhD Fellow in the Machine Learning Section at the University of Copenhagen, where I’m a member of the CoAStaL NLP group under the supervision of Desmond Elliott and Anders Søgaard. My interests lie in the intersection of machine learning, natural language processing and vision to understand human cognition. I’m especially interested in language grounding from multi-modal and multilingual contexts, and in probing the linguistic and cognitive properties of such models.

Previously, I spent one year at Okazaki Lab working on neural machine translation, with whom I still collaborate. I received my master’s degree from the School of Computer and Communication Sciences at EPFL, where I was a member of the Data Science Lab led by Robert West. Before that, I got two bachelor’s degrees from Tongji University and Politecnico di Torino.
