I am a Senior Deep Learning Researcher at MediaTek Research in Cambridge (UK). I hold a Ph.D. in Information Engineering from the University of Padova, where I was supervised by Professor Fabio Vandin.
I have a broad interest in Deep Learning, with a current focus on techniques for structured data (geometric Deep Learning), and in particular Graph Neural Networks and Graph Representation Learning.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Information Engineering and a Master's degree in Computer Engineering, both from the University of Padova. You check out my CV here.
During my PhD I have been a Research Scientist Intern at Meta AI (London) and at Samsung AI Research (Cambridge), and a visiting student in Professor Pietro Liò's group at the University of Cambridge, and in Dr. Bastian Rieck's group at Helmholtz Munich.
