I am Alessandro Lonardi, a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (Tübingen, Germany), working under the supervision of Dr. Caterina De Bacco in the Physics for Inference and Optimization group. Previous to that, I was a Master’s student in Mathematical Engineering at the University of Padova (Padua, Italy), where I also obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Physics. My PhD is supported by the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS), which is part of the Cyber Valley initiative.


My research focuses on data-rich problems where inferential predictions and mechanistic models mutually inform each other to describe complex systems. To address these problems, I develop mathematical models rooted in statistical physics and scalable algorithms. My interests are mainly in, but not limited to, urban sciences, machine learning, social sciences, and biology, and they fall under the umbrella of AI for science.
