About me

While my research interests lie in the areas of 3- and 4-manifolds touched upon by Heegaard Floer homology and contact/symplectic topology, I'm very much into elementary mathematics, and especially in Math Olympiads. I've been teaching for several years at various local and national events in Italy.
Last year, Gabriele Dalla Torre and I organised Trento Math Camp, a summer school for high school student, which was meant to let the kids see a glimpse of what real maths is about. You can read more about this in the elementary maths page.

When not dealing with maths...
I play bridge: the systems I usually play are based on Standard American or 2/1, with some tweaks.
I also play basketball (play/guard).

I'm happily married to Ilenia, since 2013.
