Silvia is a PhD student and an INPhINIT La Caixa fellow in the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning group at UPF. She is working with Jorge Lobo and Nava Rubin on neural computation models and their applications to combinatorial problems. 

She holds an MSc with Distinction in Mathematics and Foundations of Computer Science from the University of Oxford (2018), where she focused on foundational mathematics as well as random structures and algorithmics. Her thesis was concerned with the sparsification properties of constraint satisfaction problems. Previously, she had graduated with a BSc in Mathematics from University College London, for which she was awarded a special mention for outstanding performance. While at UCL, she had obtained an EPSRC grant to conduct a research project on deep learning and probabilistic combinatorics. In 2017 she was a research assistant at DTIC-UPF.
