Dr. Valerio Rossetti obtained an MSc in Particle Physics at the University "La Sapienza" in Rome. After that, he worked for 8 years on the ATLAS experiment at CERN, which proved the discovery of the Higgs boson. In his PhD thesis, he searched for the possible production of dark matter in particle collision data and won the "Springer award for outstanding doctoral work".
As a postdoctoral researcher, he continued analysing massive amounts of data using state-of-the-art machine learning. In 2016, he joined the Quant team at EY. He brought his expertise in big data and artificial intelligence into the most challenging projects that involved machine learning and fraud-detection for a large international Swiss bank.
He has a passion to teach very complex subjects in simple terms. Therefore, since 2017, he has been a teacher in the private school Athena near Geneva. This school is specialized in intellectually gifted students. There, he teaches math, physics, chemistry, robotics, English and Spanish. He particularly enjoys the robotics classes in which he teaches Arduino technology to students as young as 11 years old.
In his spare time, he works as a volunteer for the Camarada association, teaching math to migrant women.
