Currently I am a post-doc in Mathematics and I am part of Anna Wienhard’s research group at the MPI MIS in Leipzig. Later (July 2024) I will join the Math department at UC Riverside as a tenure-track assistant professor.

From August 2020 to May 2023, I was a post-doc at the University of Virginia, where my mentor was Prof. Sara Maloni. I defended my Ph.D. thesis in July 2020 at the University of Luxembourg, under the supervision of Prof. Jean-Marc Schlenker. I studied for my Bachelor and Master at the University of Pisa.

My areas of research are Geometric Topology and Differential Geometry. I am particularly interested in the study of (higher) Teichmüller spaces, surface group representations, and geometric structures on low-dimensional manifolds, in particular hyperbolic and anti-de Sitter 3-manifolds.

Together with Sam Fairchild, James Farre, and Kostas Tsouvalas, I am organizing the Geometry Seminar at the MPI MIS. Please visit our webpage for more info!
