Francesca Fallucchi joined the GEI in July 2017 and is an information scientist in the Digital Information and Research Infrastructures (DIRI) at the Georg Eckert Institute where she works in the project “WorldViews”.
She is a researcher of University of Rome Guglielmo Marconi. In 2015, she was an employee at the company 4IT Solution S.R.L. and she took care of the realization of systems for the management of big data from structured and unstructured open data.
From 2012 to 2014 she was an employer-coordinated freelance worker at AgID (Agenzia per l'italia digitale) where she has carried out research and development activities in Open Data with semantic techniques. Her main contribution is the development of methods for the knowledge discovery from structured and unstructured PA data. In particular, she has supported the development of the PA search engine and she has contributed to build and to populate the PA knowledge base and to discovery e-services in the public sector.
She has got the PhD in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, with the thesis “Exploiting Transitivity in Probabilistic Models for Ontology Learning”. She participated in the following research projects: italia.gov.it, D4Science and Diligent. She was author of many publications in conferences and journals in the Semantic Web, NLP, machine learning, Digital Humanities and related research fields. Currently, my main interests cover the knowledge discovery and data linking of structured and unstructured open data, the ontology learning, the Semantic technology and knowledge management of big data, and Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage.
