I grew up with three languages, two of which are native to me (English and Italian) and the other deeply rooted in my mind and soul (German), living mainly in Italy but visiting Austria, Germany,
the U.K. and the U.S. regularly for long periods of time.
As an adult, I deepened my international experience by living and working in various cities
around Europe (Italy, Germany, Spain) and continuing to visit the U.S., where half of my family
My knowledge of languages expanded with my age and experiences, and I am now fluent in
Spanish and French as well, and have basic conversational knowledge of Catalan.
On the whole, I therefore master six languages:
- English: native
- Italian: native
- German: full professional profeciency
- Spanish: full professional proficiency
- French: full proficiency
- Catalan: limited professional proficiency.
My high-school studies in the humanities, including Ancient Greek and Latin, gave me a solid linguistic background, which turned out to be useful in the many linguistic facets of my career.
finally as a computational linguist in the field of Natural Language Processing. The latter is a challenging and dynamic area of Artificial Intelligence in which I can make use of my scientific
and technical skills as well as of my linguistic ones.
