I am a Lovett Instructor at Rice University where my mentor is Prof. Mike Wolf.
I obtained my Ph.D. in June 2018 at the University of Luxembourg under the supervision of Prof. Jean-Marc Schlenker.
on anti-de Sitter geometry was awarded the 2019 Franco Tricerri Prize
for the best Ph.D. thesis in Differential Geometry written by an Italian mathematician in a European university.
My research activities lie in Differential Geometry: in particular, I am working on (higher) Teichmüller theory, anti-de Sitter and hyperbolic geometry, and Higgs bundles. I am also interested in simplicial volume and bounded cohomology. My paper "Polynomial quadratic differentials on the complex plane and light-like polygons in the Einstein Universe" Adv. Math. 352C (2019) pp. 483-515
won the 2019 Mario Baldassarri Prize
for the best paper in geometry, algebra or number theory, published by an Italian mathematician under the age of 30.
