Davide VenturelliQuantum Computing Lead at USRA Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science, NASA Ames Center
Venturelli graduated from Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon and obtained his Ph.D. in Numerical Simulations of the Condensed Matter at the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste and in Nanophysics at the Universite de Grenoble. He worked as a post-doc at Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, Italy, in the Condensed Matter and Information group (CMI). Venturelli is currently Science Operations Manager at the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at NASA Ames Research Center, invested for the Research Institute of Advanced Computer Science (RIACS) in research projects dealing with the non-equilibrium physics of statistical models relevant for quantum annealing and quantum computation, and how these models reflect practically across different implementation technologies or computational strategies. His applied focus in quantum optimization is in complex scheduling, telecommunication networks, and robotics/distributed AI, also in collaborations with academia and the private sector.
