I am an Associate Professor at the IT University of Copenhagen. I got my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Turin, Italy, in 2012. I conduct interdisciplinary research at the intersection of computational social science, digital health, network science, and urban informatics. I use large-scale digital data to quantify people’s well-being and build systems that can improve it. Currently, I am focusing on Natural Language Processing to quantify social and psychological experiences from text. I had a few past professional roles: Senior Research Scientist at Bell Labs in Cambridge, UK; Research Fellow of the ISI Foundation in Turin; Research Scientist at Yahoo Labs Barcelona and London; visiting scientist at the Center for Complex Networks and Systems at Indiana University.
