About me

I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California at Riverside since September 2014.

I was previously a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Ottawa and at the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, working under the supervision of Alistair Savage.

I received my PhD in June 2013 from the University of Chicago. My PhD advisor was Victor Ginzburg.

I did my undergraduate studies in Italy, at the Università di Bologna (Oldest university in the world! Founded in 1088).

Here is my CV.
