PhD candidate in Digital Humanities at the University of Utrecht, Netherlands;
Junior researcher for the TransLatin Project at the Huygens Institute, Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, Amsterdam;
Member of DHLAB.
I degreed in Literary Studies and Modern Philology (Lettere e Filologia Moderna) at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan, Italy. During my Master’s I specialised in Linguistics, with a focus on Semantics and Philosophy of Language, and I degreed with a thesis on the Semantics of the Contemporary Poetic Text.
For the next two years I worked at the CIRCSE Research Centre in Milan, for the LiLa – Linking Latin Project, as a research assistant. That is where I found out what my research aim would be: pushing forward Literary Studies, Theory and Criticism by exploiting what new perspectives the field of Digital Humanities can give.
My main focus has since been Computational Literary Studies: analysis of style and the interface between stylistics and the meaning of a text.
“Once a semanticist, forever a semanticist.”
