Capsule Bio

Born in Mesagne (Brindisi, Italy) on 29/11/1987. He got his bachelor degree in April 2009 and his master degree in october 2011, both in Mathematics at the University of Parma. Afterwards, from November 2011 to December 2014 he was a Ph.D. student in Mathematics at the University of Trento. His thesis, supervised by Alessandro Perotti, regards quaternionic analysis and applications to twistor geometry. Since February 2016 to December of the same year he had a postdoc position at UNIVPM. During 2017 and 2018, he was a postdoc at the Mathematics Department of the University of Rome 2 “Tor Vergata”.
