Hi! My name is Luca Soldaini and I'm a -- years old Ph.D. student at the Department of Computer Science at Georgetown University. My areas of research include text mining and information retrieval.

While I currently live in Washington, D.C., I grew up in Florence, Italy, where I earned my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering.

Beside IR, I'm deeply interested in everything that pushes technology frontiers forward, human-computer interactions and the tech industry dynamics. I'm really passionate about politics, human rights and I love to discuss about design.

I enjoy freshly brewed black coffee, podcasts and running. Pythonista by choice.


I'm active on a few of social networks: you can find me on Twitter @soldni or on Facebook. If you prefer, you can contact me on Skype or via iMessage.

If you have questions about anything related to my activity at Georgetown University (research or teaching assistantship), please get in touch with me at luca@ir.cs.georgetown.edu. For everything else, send an email at luca@soldaini.net .
