Aulo Gelli's main interests and experience lie broadly within the intersection of food policy and nutrition, with a particular focus on evaluating the impact of child health and nutrition interventions in low-income settings. His background and training involves a range of disciplines, and follows his interest in understanding complex systems. Gelli trained as a physicist at Imperial College London, then gained a MSc degree in neural networks at Kings College London working on semantic memory models, and then studied human perception at the Laboratory of Neurobiology at UCL. He then transitioned his career towards food policy, gaining a Masters degree in development economics and food security at the University of Rome, and a DPhil at the School of Public Health at Imperial College, studying the links between malnutrition and learning in school children in low-income settings.
