Francesco Ferrini


Located in Trento, Italy

Hi there 🌱

I am Francesco Ferrini, researcher in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Currently, I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at the Structured Machine Learning Group, University of Trento, Italy, under the supervision of Andrea Passerini (University of Trento) and Manfred Jaeger (University of Aalborg, Denmark)

My research interests revolve around Graph Neural Networks, Knowledge Graphs, and Geometric Deep Learning.

Before embarking on my doctoral journey, I completed a Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence Systems. During this time, I had the opportunity to work on various projects related to Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, and Natural Language Processing.

I also interned at Aalborg University in Denmark. It was during this period that I began my Master's thesis project, where I investigated meta-path learning with GNN in heterogeneous graphs.

In my free time, I enjoy doing sports, especially calisthenics and tennis, and playing chess.

Feel free to explore my website, where you can find more about my research, projects, and publications. If you have any questions or wish to collaborate, or simply talk about research, tech or science, don't hesitate to contact me.

  • Contact me at if interested!

If you have an idea and want to see if I'd be interested in helping out, please contact me!
