I'm a PhD student in Industrial and Environmental Engineering (curriculum Industry 4.0) from November 2017. My main research activity concerns Machine/Deep Learning for Spoken Language Processing (Audio-Visual Speech Recognition/Enhancement/Separation). In particular I focus on very challenging environments where multiple speakers are talking at the same time (i.e. Cocktail Party scenario).
I did an industrial research internship at PerVoice (Trento) last year (September-December 2019) working on Automatic Speech Recognition in noisy environments.
I'm currently doing a research internship at CASPR (Aalborg University, Denmark). At CASPR I am working on audio-visual speech inpainting, i.e. reconstruction of missing parts of a speech signal using audio and visual information.
If you are interested in my research work check out my demo presentation at European Researchers' Night (link).
