Nicola Dall'Asen

Ph.D. candidate in Artificial Intelligence @ University of Trento and University of Pisa.

Hello there! I am Nicola Dall’Asen and I am a PhD student in the Italian National Artificial Intelligence program, supervised by Elisa Ricci and Yiming Wang.

My research interest lies in the topic of generative models (in particular Diffusion Models and GANs) for entertainment and privacy-preserving applications. It has been the natural continuation of my work during the internship in Fondazione Bruno Kessler, in the Deep Visual Learning Lab. The resulting model became my first publication, “Graph-based Generative Face Anonymisation with Pose Preservation”, which you can check out here!

Beside research, I am a huge nerd: books, comics, TV series and videogames.
