Saverio Salzo received a MSc degree in (pure) Mathematics from the University of Bari in 2001 (summa cum laude) and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Genova in 2012. His main research interests are in nonsmooth optimization, proximal splitting methods, stochastic algorithms, hyperparameter optimization, bilevel optimization, optimization in probability spaces, support vector machines in Banach spaces, and tensor kernel methods. From 2016 to 2018 he was member of the Laboratory for Computational and Statistical Learning (LCSL), which is a joint initiative between the Italian Institute of Technology and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since 2020 he is also honorary lecturer at University College London (UCL).
