I am an Assistant Professor (Ricercatore RTDb in Algebra con ASN per II fascia in Geometria e Algebra) at the Dipartimento di Matematica e Applicazioni of the Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca.

I am also a collaborator member of the CEMAT Lisbon and a research collaborator of the UNICAMP-CNPq Algebra Group.

Before arriving here, I was at Florence, Cornell, CRM Barcelona, Virginia, Paris Sud 11, CAUL Lisbon and Campinas.


I am interested in questions of asymptotic, combinatorial and geometric group theory: decision problems, finiteness properties, subgroup classification, growth and dynamics in groups, such as piecewise-linear homeomorphism groups, Thompson groups, groups of diagrams, free groups, Baumslag-Solitar groups, surface groups, groups generated by automata, lamplighter groups, nilpotent groups and finite groups.


I gratefully acknowledge

  1. GNSAGA (Italian algebra and geometry national group, 2018 group member).
  2. FCT (Portuguese science foundation, team grants UID/MULTI/04621/2019 and PEst-OE/MAT/UI0143/2014 and UID/Multi/04621/2013),

for partially supporting my research. I've also been previously supported by FAPESP (São Paulo research foundation, Young Investigators (JP) grant 2016/12196-5) and CNPq (Brazilian national science foundation, Research and Productivity (PQ-2) grant 306614/2016-2) that I also gratefully acknowledge.
