Based in

United Kingdom

Giulio is a Research Associate at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, working on the AI: Futures and Responsibility (AI:FAR) Project. His research investigates epistemic security, with a focus on how epistemic threats can be countered through peer-produced approaches that allow online communities to participate in the scrutiny and moderation of information flows. His research uses various computational and machine-learning-based methods to analyse large volumes of social media data.

Giulio holds an MPhil from the University of Cambridge, and has recently submitted his PhD thesis. His PhD, jointly funded by the ESRC and the Cambridge Trust, examines how online activism can be leveraged to counteract the circulation of disinformation and misinformation on climate change.
