Postdoctoral Researcher
My main research interests are PDEs models applied to population dynamics and fractional operators. Recently, I got interested in control theory and reinforcement learning.

Elisa Affili holds a Postdoctoral position at the Chair in Computational Mathematics (Deusto Foundation), led by Prof. Enrique Zuazua (FAUUniversity of Deusto and Universidad Autónoma de Madrid).

She did her PhD in a conjoint program between the University of Milan and Sorbonne Université, where she worked at the laboratory CAMS. She earned her BSc and MSc at the University of Padova, while also attending the Galileian School of Higher Education.
