Gabriele Sarti

Data Science MSc Student

University of Trieste & SISSA


Hey there! I am currently working with the ItaliaNLP Lab and the L2R Lab under the joint supervision of Felice Dell’Orletta and Davide Crepaldi for my thesis project on NLP and psycholinguistics.

My research interests focus on interpreting deep models and understanding their learning dynamics, in particular when dealing with natural language. I am also interested in positive social applications of machine learning and AI ethics.
