PhD in Computer Science

Damiano Spina


Welcome to my personal—not an official RMIT—website. I’m a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at RMIT University and member of the Information Storage, Analysis and Retrieval (ISAR) Research Group. My main research interests are Information Retrieval (IR), Text Mining and Natural Language Processing (NLP).

I currently work on Interactive Information Retrieval and, in particular, on how to model user-system interaction in bounded channels such as Spoken Conversational Search and complex search tasks such as Job Search.

In my free time, I teach Capoeira at the Associação de Capoeira Descendente do Pantera –where I am also known as Estagiário Camaleão– and play samba with Wombatuque.
