Simone Conia

Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning enthusiast. PhD student at Sapienza NLP.

Hi, I’m Simone Conia. Welcome to my personal website!

I am among those lucky people who can study what they love and love what they study. Currently, I am a second-year PhD student in Computer Science at the Sapienza NLP group.

My research revolves around multilinguality and cross-linguality in Semantics, with a focus on Semantic Role Labeling, Word Sense Disambiguation and Semantic Parsing.

Last but not least I love Italian and Japanese food from “tonnarelli cacio e pepe” to “sukiyaki”. After all, I am half italian half japanese.
