Nicola Dall'Asen

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

in a galaxy far, far away....

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… when I’m not reading papers…

During my studies I fell in love with the Linux and OSS world, as it strives to foster an equal view of the world.
