Fabrizio Coccetti is Director of Technology at Centro Ricerche Enrico Fermi (CREF).
He worked at SLAC (Stanford University, with a grant from US-DoE) and later at CERN (2009-2012) in the ALICE experiment.
He is an expert in Monte Carlo Simulations, Complex Networks, and Big Data Analysis.
He was visiting professor at IMT Alti Studi of Lucca (2014) to develop “Analysis of Big Data using methods of statistical physics, Agent-Based Modelling and Algorithms of Complex Networks”.
He was a member of the group of researchers which established the Internet2 Land Speed Record (listed in the Guinness Book of World Records 2004).
In his career, he published more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals, collecting more than 10000 citations (source Google Scholar), h-index 40.
He was the Run Coordinator of the Extreme Energy Events experiment (EEE) and in charge of the Monte Carlo simulations of Cosmic Extensive Air Showers.
He studied the optimization of solar cells and, in 2016 and 2017, he was the Italian coordinator of the Progetto di Grande Rilevanza, bilateral collaboration with South Africa, “Plasmonics for a better efficiency of solar cells” funded by MAECI.

Now he is responsible for the CREF project “From training to innovation and development” and his research interests cover Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence.
