Senior Research Fellow


Ilaria Luise is a Senior Research Fellow at CERN, the European Center for Nuclear Research in Geneva. She works as a physicists within the Innovation Division of the CERN IT-Department. Her background is in high energy physics and big data management. She is one of the main developers of the AtmoRep project, which aims at exploring the potential of foundation models based on large scale Machine Learning trained on petabytes of Earth observations (ERA5) for weather and climate forecasting, in collaboration with the Juelich Supercomputing Center and the Department of Computer Graphics at the University of Magdeburg.

She is Co-PI of the EMP2 project at CERN, which is part of the CERN Innovation Programme on Environmental Applications (CIPEA). The EMP2 project aims at implementing the AtmoRep model into a digital twin engine. This is performed in collaboration with the EU funded InterTwin project and the Digital Twin initiative at CERN.
