I am a data scientist with a strong interest in social science and cultural studies, exploring how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is influencing human behaviour.
I am currently (2018-) a PhD Student at the Music Technology Group of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, working under the supervision of Dr. Emilia Gómez and Dr. Carlos Castillo. My current research is at the intersection between Music Information Retrieval and Social Computing, and in particular I am researching how music recommendation diversity is impacting our socio-cultural system.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics from "La Sapienza" University of Rome (2009-2014), a Master's degree in Sound and Music Computing (2014-2015), and a Master's degree in Intelligent Interactive Systems (2016-2018) from Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I also had several work experiences in the music industry as Data Engineer (SoundCloud, MonkingMe, BMAT).
