I focused my research at the intersection of geometry and low-dimensional topology. More precisely, I study deformation spaces of geometric structures on low-dimensional manifolds through their geometric, topological and dynamical properties.  

I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Warwick (2013) and my M.S. and B.S. in mathematics from the University of Genova. Before coming to UVA, I was a Tamarkin Assistant Professor at Brown University and I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Paris-Sud 11 and at the University of Toulouse. I also spent the Spring semester in 2015 at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) in Berkeley as a Huneke Endowed Postdoctoral Fellow.

In my free time, I love hiking, scuba diving, travelling, reading, crafting (felting, pottery, woodworking). Feel free to suggest me ideas about what to read or create and where to hike or travel! :)
