I'm Valentina, an Italian doctoral researcher who is living in France.
I'm currently doing a PhD in Machine Learning at Laboratory Hubert Curien (Saint-Etienne, France), under the supervision of Marc Sebban and Rémi Emonet. My work is about learning data representations using statistical methods and probabilistic models with theoretical guarantees. At the moment, I'm interested in decentralized learning.
During a summer internship at IBM Research, Dublin, I also worked with Mathieu Sinn, Maria-Irina Nicolae and Ambrish Rawat on studying and building Deep Learning architectures robust to adversarial examples.
Previously, I graduated from INSA de Lyon in Computer Science.
