Hello there, I’m Tommaso 👋!

I am a first-year PhD student in the NLP Unit at the DWS Group of the University of Mannheim. I am currently supervised by Prof. Dr. Simone Paolo Ponzetto and Prof. Dr. Goran Glavaš. My main interests are in natural language understanding and multilingual representation learning. I am also a member of the LeadTheFuture Community.

I did my Bachelor’s in Information Engineering at the University of Padua, where I also completed my Master’s in Computer Engineering. During my thesis on question answering, I became interested in NLP, as it’s a weird mix of things I really love: math, language and programming (kind of stealing a quote from one of my supervisors here, please don’t tell him 🤫).

I am quite the board game fan, if you also are a board game geek please do not hesitate to bring it up if you meet me: I’m always up for a game or two 🎲!
