I am tenure-track Assistant Professor (RTD b) at the University of Parma.

In the past years, I have held several postdoctoral positions:
at the University of Edinburgh (2017-2020),
at the University of Southern California
in Los Angeles (2014-2017), and at the Hebrew University
of Jerusalem (Fall 2013).
I received my Ph.D. from Northeastern University
in Boston in 2013.

I am a member of the Lab *Algebraic structures, Quantization, and Applications *
(AQuA) at the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science of the University of Parma
and the Italian interuniversity research group *Geometry and Representation Theory* (GRT).

Indeed, my research is in Representation Theory, with a special focus on
the interplay between algebra, geometry and mathematical physics in quantum groups.
I am interested in infinite-dimensional Lie algebras, quantum groups and braid groups,
quantization and deformation theory, integrable systems, and categorification.

I am responsible for the curriculum in Algebra of the
master program in Mathematics at the University of Parma. Courses
are generally held during the second semester (Spring). In 2020,
I taught * Topics in Algebra* (Algebra Superiore) and
* Galois Theory * (Estensioni Algebriche di Campi).

In the past years, I taught similar advanced courses such as * Topics
in Rings and Representation Theory* at the University of Edinburgh
(an introductory course on infinite-dimensional Kac-Moody algebras),
* Topics in Algebra * (an introduction to Quantum Groups) and
* Topics in Topology * (infinite-dimensional Lie groups) at
the University of Southern California as part of the Ph.D. program.
