Gianni Barlacchi
Compact biography

I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Trento (Italy) working in the Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing group. Before that, I got both Master and Bachelor degree in Computer Engineering at the University of Siena. I am broadly interested in machine learning, natural language processing and data analysis. My research focuses on developing machine learning models to predict people's activities from textual and geo-spatial data. working in top industrial research centres like Telefonica Research in Spain and IBM Research in Ireland. My PhD is supported with a fellowship by TIM (Telecom Italia).

Beside my research interests I have fun participating in data science challenges, play drums and go hiking.
