Bio

I am tenure-track Assistant Professor (RTD b) at the University of Parma.
I have held several postdoctoral positions abroad: 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 Algebra and Geometry group of the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science, in particular of the Research Lab AQuA: Algebra, Quantization, and Applications and the Italian interuniversity research group GRT: Geometry and Representation Theory.

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, Yangians and quantum loop algebras, 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 and the courses Topics in Algebra (Algebra Superiore 1), Topics in Representation Theory (Algebra Superiore 2), Commutative Algebra, and Galois Theory. Algebra courses are generally held during the second semester (Spring).

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.
