I am Associate Professor of Algebra at the University of Parma.

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

I am a member of the *Algebra and Geometry* group of the Department of Mathematics,
Physics and Computer Science.

My research is in Representation Theory and Mathematical Physics.
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 in charge of the Algebra curriculum of the
master program in Mathematics at the University of Parma, including
the courses *Topics in Algebra (Algebra Superiore 1)*,
*Topics in Representation Theory (Algebra Superiore 2)*,
and *Algebra 2*. I usually also teach a Ph.D. course every year.
My courses are generally held during the second semester (Spring).
