I recently graduated in math at the University of Pisa. I completed a thesis on "Trisections of 4-manifolds" under the supervision of Prof. Paolo Lisca.

I am currently a Graduate reading for DPhil in Mathematics at the University of Oxford, St. Catherine's college.

I am supervised by Dr. Heather Harrington, Prof. Marc Lackenby and Dr. Dorothy Buck.

My field of research is DNA topology: low-dimensional topology, with a focus on knot theory and their applications to DNA.
