Federico Carminati is investigating Machine Learning and Quantum Computing for High Energy Physics in the CERN openlab. After getting his Master in Physics at the University of Pavia, Italy in 1981 he worked at Los Alamos and Caltech as particle physicist before being hired by CERN in the Data Handling Division. He was responsible for the CERN Program Library and the GEANT detector simulation programme, the world standard High Energy Physics code suite in the 80’s and 90’s. From 1994 to 1998 he worked with Nobel Prize Carlo Rubbia at the design of a novel accelerator-driven nuclear power device. From 1998 to 2013 he has been Computing Coordinator of the ALICE experiment at LHC. In 2013, he obtained a PhD in physics at the University of Nantes (France). From 2013 to 2017 he has been leading the development of the new generation of particle transport code. Federico is also a certified pet therapist, a group psychoanalyst, didactical psychoanalyst at the Société pour la Psychanalyse Multidisciplinaire and member of the Institute for Psychoanalysis Charles Baudouin in Geneva.
