Research activity

I am a PhD Student  at the second year and my current research activity lies at the intersection of traditional NLP for sentiment analysis, social media mining and statistical analysis for demography. More specifically I aim to use NLP techniques, combined with statistical analysis to detect and describe hate speech phenomena on Social Media in Italy, with a focus on immigration and immigrants integration issues.

My focus for the first year were

  • manual annotation of linguistic data
  • design, evaluation and optimization of crowdsourced annotation tasks for highly subjective tasks in linguistic data annotation

For my second year my research topic include

  • disagreement measures for highly subjective crowdsourced annotation tasks in linguistic data annotation
  • optimization of demographic indicator  for the measurement of  immigration integration in Italy
