Andrea Manno is an Assistant Professor in Operations Reasearch and Machine Learning at the Department of Information Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics (DISIM) at the University of L’Aquila. He received his Master degree in Management Engineering in 2011 at Sapienza Università di Roma, where he also obtained his Ph.D. in Operations Research in 2015 with a thesis titled "Decomposition Algorithms for Learning Systems". His research interests mainly concern the design of nonlinear optimization algorithms and models for the training of learning machines, and derivative-free algorithms for expensive black-box functions.
From 2019 he is a member of the Center of Excellence on Design methodologies for Embedded controllers, Wireless interconnect and System–on–chip (DEWS) at the University of L’Aquila. From 2021 he is part of the editorial board of the Soft Computing journal (Springer) as Associate Editor.
