Short Bio:

Since January 2nd 2019 I am an associate professor at the Department of Mathematics of Stockholm University. I also hold a 20% position at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Bergen. Since January 2017, and all the way through December 2020, I have been the manager of the project "The Arithmetic of Derived Categories" funded by the Research Council of Norway under the scheme "Young Research Talents".

From January 1st 2013 to July 31st 2015, I was a Postdoctoral Research Assistant Professor at the Mathematics Department of University of Utah (Salt Lake City (UT), USA). From August 2013, I was also an organizer of the University of Utah Algebraic Geometry Seminar.

Before that, I was a Marie Curie Fellow at the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics, University of Warsaw. This fellowship was awarded by "The ERCIM Alain Bensoussan Fellowship Programme" and it is supported by the Marie Curie Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes (COFUND) of the European Commission.

In February 2012, I completed my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the Università degli studi Roma TRE with a thesis entitled Syzygies, Pluricanonical Maps and the Birational Geometry of Irregular Varieties, written under the supervision of Prof. G. Pareschi (Università degli studi di Roma "Tor Vergata").

Before entering in the Ph.D. program of the Università degli Studi Roma TRE, I was a student at the University of Bologna where I completed both my B.Sc. in Mathematics (2006) and M.Sc. in Mathematics (2008).

Research interests:

My primary fields of interest are Algebraic Geometry and Homological Algebra.

My research currently focuses on the study of the derived categories of algebraic varieties defined over fields of positive characteristic. I am also working on finding an effective birational characterization of semiabelian varieties.
