I have been a PhD Student in linguistics, applied linguistics and linguistic engineering (PhD course in Euro-Asiatic Studies: Indology, Linguistics, Onomastics - XXIII cycle) at the University of Turin since January 2008.
I graduated in Translation (MA, July 2007) and Linguistic Mediation (BA, February 2006) at the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures of Turin.
I am interested in various fields of general linguistics and linguistic engineering.
In particular, I work in experimental, acoustic and articulatory phonetics; my PhD project concerns the rhythmic typologisation of natural languages and rhythm correlates.
I have a passion for Scandinavian languages (which has brought me to work on Icelandic preaspiration) and for programming languages used for natural language processing.
I have participated in some projects concerning the Teaching of Italian as an L2 (among which Scienza Multilingue, in collaboration with the University of Turin and the Piedmont Region) and of anglistics (I have been collaborating for a dictionary of anglicisms in Italian).
I have developed Correlatore, a program for computing rhythm correlates from Praat annotation files and for drawing charts for the typologisation of languages on the basis of rhythm.
I give lectures within the courses of General Linguistics at the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures of Turin and I take part in the examining of BA students.
I have participated in several congresses in Italy and abroad.
