Irene Celino

Head of Knowledge Technologies Group · Cefriel · Milano, Italy

Hi! My name is Irene and I am a Computer Scientist with a passion for Research and Innovation.
I am an expert in Web and Data technologies, with a specialization in Semantic Web, Semantic Interoperability, Human Computation, Citizen Science, Human-in-the-loop Machine Learning and Data Analytics.

I am the Head of the Knowledge Technologies group, one of the 10 competence centers in Cefriel, the research, innovation and technology transfer center of Politecnico di Milano, where I lead a group of talented professionals specialized in Human Computation and Semantic Interoperability with a focus on Smart Cities and transport/mobility.
I have 15+ years of experience in 30+ cooperative research projects, at regional, national and European level; I started as junior researcher and I have gained increasing responsibilities over time, and now I also cover the roles of Project Manager, Project Coordinator and Principal Investigator. I have been involved in numerous competitive project proposals' submission, with successful grant acquisition for more than 4M euro funding for my organization.
I am the author of 100+ publications and I had the pleasure of winning different awards for my scientific and applied research work.

I believe that I am a multipotentialite, therefore, in my free time, I like to explore all my other passions: I love to read both fantasy novels and psychology/behavioural books and I unleash my creativity and artistic side, as a wannabe hand-lettering artist.
