Occupation: Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Aston University

Transformative policy, research and education heal nations. Yet they start with a union of minds, as fostered by the UK Young Academy.


Alina Patelli is passionate about the environmental agenda and is committed to realising it by harvesting the power of AI, ethically, safely, and considerately. She dedicates her work, both in the arena of scientific research and in the classroom, to developing powerful, reliable and moral technologies with applications in problem domains directly relevant to the net zero strategy. Intelligent transportation is one. Imagine a fully integrated urban ecosystem where people, their vehicles and the roads on which they travel interact in a sustainable, conscientious way that preserves the planet and betters the lives of its inhabitants. This is what Alina stands for and aims to bring about by educating the AI researchers of tomorrow.
