I am a research scientist at Facebook AI Research (FAIR) and Applied Machine Learning (AML). I am also an associate professor in the Computer Science Department at Dartmouth.
I received a Laurea Degree in computer science with summa cum laude honors from the University of Milan (Italy) in 1996, and an MS and a PhD in computer science from Stanford University in 2001 and 2005, respectively. Prior to Facebook, I have worked at several other industrial research labs, including Microsoft Research, Like.com and Digital Persona. My research interests are in computer vision and deep learning. I am the recipient of a CVPR best student paper prize, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, a Google Faculty Research Award, three Facebook Faculty Awards and a Fulbright US Scholar Award.
