Information Studies


Daniele Metilli

I am a Research Fellow in Advanced Data Architectures for Digital Humanities at the Sloane Lab, a Towards a National Collection discovery project. I am responsible for managing the knowledge that is collected in the project, modelling it using Semantic Web technologies, and publishing it as Linked Data for further exploration and reuse.

Previously I was a Graduate Fellow at ISTI-CNR, where I worked on several Digital Humanities projects involving knowledge representation through ontologies and the Semantic Web (Mingei – Representation and Preservation of Heritage Crafts, Hypermedia Dante Network, Narratives in Digital Libraries, DanteSources, IMAGO).

In October 2021 I completed my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Pisa, with a thesis about the computational representation of narrative and its extraction from text. I previously earned a Master’s Degree in Digital Humanities from the University of Pisa and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Milan.
