About me

My research interests mainly lie in low-dimensional topology, with inspiration from contact topology, symplectic topology, singularity theory, and complex surfaces. I also like thinking about lattices and elementary mathematics.

Before arriving in Nantes, I was a postdoc in Oxford (2017, with András Juhász), Uppsala (2015–2017, with Tobias Ekholm), Pisa (2014–2015, with Riccardo Benedetti and Bruno Martelli), and Budapest (2012–2014, with András Stipsicz). I got my PhD from the University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Jake Rasmussen (2012); I did my undergrad at the University of Pisa and at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa (2009).

I have collaborated with the Italian Mathematical Olympiads Committee for several years. I've been teaching at various local and national events in Italy. Gabriele Dalla Torre and I organised Trento Math Camp 2013, a summer school for high school students.
