Ada Altieri obtained her Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics in February 2018 from both the University of Rome “Sapienza” and the University Paris-Sud XI co-advised by Giorgio Parisi and Silvio Franz. During her Ph.D. she focused on renormalization group techniques in disordered systems as well as on the connections between continuous constraint satisfaction problems and zero-temperature glassy phases in high dimensions. In November 2017 she moved to the Laboratoire de Physique Théorique of the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, obtaining a postdoctoral fellowship to work with Francesco Zamponi on the rheology of amorphous solids under shear deformations. Then, one year later she joined the team of Giulio Biroli dealing with various topics on which the Simons Collaboration “Cracking the Glass Problem” is based. In 2020 she was awarded the L’Oréal-UNESCO Fellowship for Women in Science for her research on the “Ecosystems’ complexity through the prism of statistical physics”. Since December 2020 she is Associate Professor in the Lab “Matière et Systèmes Complexes” at University of Paris.
