Stefano Carrazza is an associate professor at the Department of Physics, University of Milan. Previously he was a research fellow in the theoretical physics department at CERN. He graduated in Particle Physics and Field Theory at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon, and performed his PhD in theoretical particle physics at the University of Milan. During his PhD, several studies about the parton distribution functions have been published including the first model free determination of the photon PDF from LHC data. Just after his PhD, he got a PostDoc position in the EIBURS context carrying studies about the cost/benefit of research infrastructures at CERN, building models based on machine learning to predict the scientific outcome. He is currently the R&D coordinator of the N3PDF project and the NNPDF collaboration. His current research interests covers a large range of topics, from particle physics, quantum optics to machine learning and economics.
