Fabio Petroni

Research Engineer

I have a PhD in engineering in computer science from Sapienza University of Rome. I also hold a master’s in computer engineering summa cum laude, from Sapienza University in Rome, and a bachelor’s degree from the same place. I have been a visiting researcher at the University of Mannheim.
 
My research experience includes the development of natural language processing models for relational analysis, studying the spreading of misinformation online and developing distributed training techniques, among others. Prior to joining Facebook, I was with the R&D department of Thomson Reuters as a research scientist.

Interests

Machine learning, natural language processing, distributed computing and recommender systems
