PhD in Computer Science

Damiano Spina

Welcome to my personal—not an official RMIT—website. I’m a Lecturer and DECRA Fellow at RMIT University (School of Science, Computer Science and IT) and member of Research Centre for Information Discovery and Data Analytics (CIDDA). 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.
