Ambrosio studied mathematics from 1981 onwards at the University of Pisa , where he graduated summa cum laude with Ennio de Giorgi in 1985 and continued his doctoral studies at the Scuola Normale Superiore until 1988 . From 1988 to 1992 he was research assistant at the University of Rome (Tor Vergata). In 1992 he was assistant professor at the University of Pisa and from 1994 professor at the University of Benevento . From 1995 he was a professor at the University of Pavia before he became a professor at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa in 1997. Among other things, he was a visiting scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Natural Sciences in Leipzig , the Massachusetts Institute of Technology , the ETH Zurich and the IHES .
In 1991 he received the Bartolozzi Prize of the Unione Matematica Italiana and in 1999 its Caccioppoli Prize . In 1996 he was a guest speaker at the 2nd European Congress of Mathematicians in Budapest , and in 2008 he gave a plenary lecture at the European Congress of Mathematicians in Amsterdam ( Optimal transportation and evolution problems in spaces of probability measures ). In 2002 he was a guest speaker at the ICM in Beijing ( Optimal transport maps in Monge-Kantorovich-Problem ). In 2005 he became a corresponding member of the Accademia dei Lincei and in 2006 of the Istituto Lombardo. In 2003 he received the Fermat Prize . In 2018 he was plenary speaker at the ICM in Rio (Calculus, heat flow and curvature-dimension bounds in metric measure spaces). In 2019 Ambrosio received the Blaise Pascal Medal and the Balzan Prize .
He was co-editor of the Archive for Rational Mechanics and Analysis , Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations, and the Journal of the European Mathematical Society .
