Carlo Barbieri holds a PhD in physics from ENS in Paris. His current research interests are on the boundary between physics, biology, and informatics. During his thesis "Inverse Problems in Biophysics," he worked on developing algorithms to extract biologically relevant information from biophysics experiments such as DNA micromanipulation and neural activity recordings. He spent one year as a visiting PhD student at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He earned a master's in physics from the University of Rome "La Sapienza", in his hometown, focusing on Boolean satisfiability and the statistical physics of complex systems. He now works for Wolfram in the Advanced Research Group, and has developed the automated data analysis functionality for Wolfram|Alpha.
He now works on Wolfram Cloud features such as instant forms and APIs. He is a music lover, an avid traveler, and a bike maniac. He finds it weird to talk about himself in the third person.
