Leopoldo Sarra

Leopoldo Sarra is a Flatiron Research Fellow, working in the Foundation Models for Science initiative. His current research interests lie at the intersection of physics and machine learning. In particular, he has been investigating how machine learning techniques can be used to support scientific discovery, exploring how a future "Artificial Scientist" could automatically learn from observations, understand relevant concepts, build new physical models and design new experiments similar to how human scientists do. He received his Ph.D. from the Friedrich-Alexander Universität in Erlangen, Germany, in association with the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, after earning his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Physics at Sapienza University of Rome, Italy.
