Roberto Trotta is Professor of Astrostatistics in the Astrophysics Group, where he studies dark matter, dark energy and the Big Bang with advanced statistical methods, machine learning and data science. He is also an Academic Fellow at Imperial's Data Science Institute. He has been the Director of Imperial's Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication from Aug 2015 until July 2020.
Roberto is presently on leave of absence from Imperial, and has joined the faculty of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy, as part of the senior leadership team of a new Data Science Excellence Department there.
Roberto was born and grew up in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. After obtaining an MSc(hons) in Physics from ETH Zurich and a PhD in Theoretical Physics from the University of Geneva, he moved to Oxford where he was the Lockyer Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society at Oxford University, and a Junior Fellow of St Anne's, before being appointed as a Lecturer at Imperial in 2008, where he is Professor of Astrostatistics in the Physics Department, and has directed the Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication (2015-2020).
Roberto is a science communicator and a Visiting Professor of Cosmology at Gresham College, London. He is the recipient of numerous awards for his research, outreach and teaching, including the Lord Kelvin Award of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (2007), the Michelson Prize of Case Western Reserve University (2008), a President's Award for Excellence in Teaching (2016) and a President's Leadership Award for Excellence in Societal Engagement (2018) at Imperial College London. In 2019, he was awarded the Georges Lemaitre Chair of the University of Louvaine. He was awarded the Annie Maunder Medal 2020 of the Royal Astronomical Society for his work in public understanding of astronomy and cosmology.
