**Something about me (you never know what
people are curious of)**

I got my degree in Mathematics in Rome, la Sapienza in 1993,
spending my fourth year in Utrecht (NL) as an Erasmus exchange student. My
thesis was on coalgebras over the ring of integers.
Then I participated in the Master Class on Algebraic Lie Theory and
Hypergeometric Functions in the Netherlands, where I also received my PhD in
1999 studying a quantum analogue of Fourier transform. My final advisor was
Tom Koornwinder. At the same time I did volunteer work for the
Tussenvoorziening
and had related training. After spending a few months at Cergy-Pontoise
and Paris VI, I moved
to Antwerp where I learnt about the Brauer group of Hopf algebras and of braided
categories. Shortly after I moved back to Rome, Tor Vergata and in 2001,
to Padova where I am associate professor in Algebra since october 2015. At
present I mainly work on algebraic and geometric properties of
conjugacy classes in reductive algebraic groups (key example GL(V)) with
some digressions in finite groups of Lie type, and an eye to applications
in Hopf algebra theory and Representation Theory. At the moment I have
collaborations with mathematicians in Córdoba and La Plata,
Argentina, in Erlangen-Nürnberg and in Padova. In 2014 I have
obtained
Abilitazione for
full professoship. Since 2016 I am responsible for the
Relations of the University of Padova with Latin America and the
Caribbean.
