about me...

I am a member, since 2002, of the Artificial Intelligence Research Group at the Department of Enterprise Engineering of the University of Rome "Tor Vergata". I graduated in Engineering & Computer Science in 2002 with a thesis on "Ontological Mediation in a community of Intelligent Linguistic Agents" and took my PhD in 2006 with a thesis on Alignment and Mediation of Distributed Information Sources in the Semantic Web

Research Interests

My research interests mainly cover solutions for the Web of Data/Semantic Web. In particular:

I'm currently leading the Vocbench project, a Collaborative Framework for RDF Management, which is already being adopted by several important organizations and research institutions.

Another recent activity I'm working on is related to architectures for integrating Unstructured Information Management components into Semantic Web Applications for Knowledge Acquisition. CODA is the flagship platform developed by our team for lifting UIMA extracted information to RDF.

In 2005, together with Roberto Basili and Alfredo Serafini, I had an interesting (and really exciting!) experience in Music Information Retrieval. I hope to get back to it "somewhen" in the future!


IBM UIMA Innovation Award in 2007, with a project on a semantic annotation platform for taking UIMA compliant text annotations over web pages


I've been consultant for the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in the years 2009-2015, working together with the Information and Knowledge Management group led by Johannes Keizer.
