About me - CV and career

I'm an Assistant Professor in probability (Ricercatore a Tempo Determinato di Tipo B), Universita' degli Studi Roma Tre -- Department of Mathematics and Physics, Rome (Italy). I got this position within the project Programma per Giovani Ricercatori "Rita Levi Montalcini".

My CV in a few lines:

Since July 2019 I am an Assistant Professor / Tenure track (Ricercatore a Tempo Determinato di Tipo B) at the Universita' degli Studi Roma Tre (Department of Mathematics and Physics), Rome (Italy). I got awarded this position from the Italian Ministry of Education and Research within the project Programma per Giovani Ricercatori "Rita Levi Montalcini". (Success rate of the award: about 6%.)

Prior to that I was a Research Fellow at the Universita' degli Studi Roma Tre -- Department of Mathematics and Physics, Rome (Italy).

Between 2015 and 2018 I was a Harrison Early Career Assistant Professor at the University of Warwick (Department of Statistics), and between 2013 and 2015 I was a Research Fellow (postdoc) in the same department.

From 2012 to 2013 I was a Research Fellow (postdoc) in the School of Mathematics, at the University of Birmingham (UK), working with Nikolaos Fountoulakis on properties of random geometric graphs on hyperbolic spaces.

I got my PhD in Technical Mathematics at the TUGraz (Graz University of Technology), under the supervision of Wolfgang Woess (July 2012) with the PhD thesis Limit Behaviors for Random Walks and Branching Random Walks on some Products of Groups.

I got my Masters degree (mathematics) in 2008 at the University of Turin (Italy), advised by Wolfgang Woess and Laura Sacerdote.

My bachelor thesis (University of Turin, 2006) was advised by Paolo Cermelli.
