About me

I joined the Department of Mathematics of Padova in 2012 as
assistant professor in the area of Probability. I studied Mathematics
at the University of Bologna, and obtained a PhD in Mathematics
from the University of Roma Tre in 2007. As a postdoc, I worked
three years in the Weierstrass Institute of Berlin (WIAS) and three
years in the Department of Mathematics of Bologna. My research
interests are Probability and Statistical Mechanics.
