I am an assistant professor in the EECS department at Syracuse University.

Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral research associate in the Industrial and System Engineering (ISyE) department at the Georgia Institute of Technology, working with Pascal Van Hentenryck, and a research fellow at the University of Michigan.

I received my PhDs in Computer Science from the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at University of Udine, and the Department of Computer Science at New Mexico State University, supervised by Agostino Dovier, at the University of Udine and Enrico Pontelli, at New Mexico State University.

Research interests

Artificial Intelligence; Machine Learning; Data Privacy; Multiagent systems;
I am also broadly interested in the application of Privacy and Machine Learning for energy, transportation, and sustainability applications.


Ferdinando (Nando) Fioretto is an assistant professor at Syracuse University. His research focuses on artificial intelligence, multiagent systems, and data privacy. Nando has published in several top-ranked artificial intelligence journals and conferences and has served the (senior) program committee of various AI conferences, including AAAI, IJCAI, AAMAS, and CP. He is the recipient of a best student paper award (CMSB, 2013), a most visionary paper award (AAMAS workshop series, 2017), and a best AI dissertation award (AI*IA, 2017).
