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 a member of the Combinatorial and Homological Algebra group at Milano-Bicocca. Through Bicocca, I am an affiliate of MateMatita, a research center for the communication and informal learning of Math.

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 the universities of 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, diagram groups, free groups, right-angled Artin groups, automata groups and finite groups.
