Pietro is a Professor of Computer Science and head of the Data Science Department at EURECOM.
In his work, Pietro blends theory and system research focusing on scalable machine learning algorithms. Pietro is interested in developing a theoretical understanding of the optimization process underlying many machine learning methods, in methodological aspects of computationally efficient Bayesian inference approaches, and their application in industrial domains such as the automotive and the IT infrastructure industries.
In the past, Pietro worked on a wide range of research topics, including: computer networks and their performance evaluation, applied cryptography, applied game theory, distributed systems for content storage and distribution, and distributed data management systems.
