Hello! I’m a Ph.D. Student at Politecnico di Milano, affiliated with the RecSys@PoliMi group.
My current research field is Recommender Systems and I am working on the evaluation of deep-learning algorithms focusing on the reproducibility of published experimental results. I am also working on Applied Quantum Machine Learning for RecSys applications.
Open PhD positions available! Two fully funded PhD positions on Recommender Systems are available at the RecSys Lab at Politecnico di Miano on the following topics: Applied Quantum Machine Learning and Evaluation of Recommender Systems! You can find more details on our group website
Preprint available! Have a look at the preprint of the extended version of our reproducibility study (still under review). We welcome your feedback! “A Troubling Analysis of Reproducibility and Progress in Recommender Systems Research”
