Leopoldo Sarra, Ph.D.

Flatiron Research Fellow, Foundation Model for Science, Flatiron InstituteLeopoldo Sarra’s website

Leopoldo Sarra is a Flatiron Research Fellow at the Flatiron Institute, working in the Foundation Models for Science initiative. His current research interests include the intersection of physics and machine learning. In particular, he investigates 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. Sarra received his Ph.D. from the Friedrich-Alexander Universität in Erlangen, Germany, in association with the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light. He earned his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in physics at Sapienza University.
