Alberto Testoni

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation - University of Amsterdam and part of the Dialogue Modeling group . I got my PhD in Computer Science from the IECS International Doctoral School at the University of Trento, working under the supervision of Raffaella Bernardi. Before that, I obtained an M.Sc. in Cognitive Science from CIMeC-UniTN (Center for Mind/Brain Sciences) and I hold a B.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Bologna. My work lies at the intersection between different fields, such as Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science; in particular, my research focuses on developing multimodal Vision & Language dialogue agents equipped with reasoning and planning skills.
