I am a PostDoc at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, in the IIT @ MIT lab with Lorenzo Rosasco. I'm interested in developing efficient algorithms for shallow learning: in particular kernel models but also more recently neural radiance fields (NeRFs).

I hold a PhD from the University of Genova (at the MaLGa group), where I developed the Falkon library, the state of the art solver for approximate kernel ridge regression (training on the 1B point Taxi dataset in 1 hour).

More recently I'm focusing on algorithmic challenges in the natural sciences, applying fast kernel methods to molecular dynamics (more details here) and atomistic energy estimation.
