Bio

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.


Research

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.


Teaching

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.
