Francesca Grisoni

Francesca Grisoni is an Assistant Professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology, where she leads the Molecular Machine Learning team. After receiving her Ph.D. in 2016 at the University of Milano-Bicocca (Prof. R. Todeschini) with a dissertation on machine learning for (eco)toxicology, Francesca worked as a data scientist and as a biostatistical consultant for the pharmaceutical industry. Later, she joined the University of Milano-Bicocca and the ETH Zurich as a postdoctoral researcher (Prof. G. Schneider), working on machine learning for drug discovery and de novo design. Her team’s research focuses on developing novel chemistry-centred deep learning methods to augment human intelligence in drug discovery, at the interface between computation and wet-lab experiments.
