I am Associate Professor (Reader) in Machine Learning in the Applied and Computational Mathematics research group at the University of Edinburgh, School of Mathematics. I am also affiliated with the Numerical Analysis and Data Science group at the Gran Sasso Science Institute, an International School of Doctoral Studies and one of the Italian Superior Graduate Schools.
My research interests lie at the intersection between machine learning and scientific computing. My recent work includes hallucination mitigation for language models, the use of model-order reduction techniques from matrix and tensor differential equations to design training algorithms for deep learning, the analysis of neural networks in the infinite width and infinite depth limits, nonlinear spectral theory with applications to machine learning on graphs, and the design and analysis of physics-inspired deep learning models in scientific simulations.
