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.

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.

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.
