I am an assistant professor (aka RTD-A in Italy) at the Computer Science Department of the University of Pisa.

My research focuses on Continual Learning and Deep Learning. I am interested in all kinds of learning environments where data changes over time. I I have started working on Continual Learning by studying the behavior of Recurrent Neural Networks models in sequential data processing applications.

I am a member of the Pervasive AI Lab (University of Pisa and CNR) and of the Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning (CIML) group at (University of Pisa). I was a Board Member and Treasurer of ContinualAI, a non-profit research organization and an open community of Continual/Lifelong Learning researchers and enthusiasts. I am one of the maintainers of Avalanche, an End-to-End library for Continual Learning based on PyTorch.

I received my Ph.D. in Data Science from Scuola Normale Superiore and University of Pisa. My Ph.D. thesis titled "Towards Real-World Data Streams for Deep Continual Learning" is publicly available here. I received my Master's Degree in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence Curriculum) from the University of Pisa.

I spent one year as a postdoctoral researcher at University of Pisa. I was visiting researcher at KU Leuven (Belgium) and research intern at Google Brain, Mountain View (California).
