Andrea Cini

PhD student @ IDSIA , Università della Svizzera italiana (USI)



Hi! I’m a PhD student at the Graph Machine Learning Group, within the Swiss AI lab IDSIA, at USI, under the supervision of Prof. Cesare Alippi. Currently, I am visiting Imperial College London, working on graph-based forecasting with Prof. Danilo Mandic . Previously, I worked as an R&D machine learning engineer at Argotec, developing reinforcement learning methods for the control of autonomous nanosatellites. I got my MSc and BSc in Computer Science and Engineering at Politecnico di Milano where I did my thesis supervised by Prof. Marcello Restelli. You can have a look at my CV.


Currently, my research focuses on processing spatiotemporal data by exploiting graph representations and graph neural networks. Applications are in time series analysis and reinforcement learning, with a focus on spatiotemporal forecasting. I am also broadly interested in the use of machine learning methods to accelerate both scientific discovery and engineering. You can find an updated list of my publications here.
