About me

I am a PhD student at KU Leuven under the supervision of Prof. Fatemeh Mohammadi

My research is funded by FWO fundamental research fellowship.

Email: francesca.zaffalon *at* kuleuven.be

Address: Celestijnenlaan 200B - box 2400, 3001 Leuven (Belgium)

I am interested in combinatorial algebraic geometry. Some things I like to think about are toric degenerations, matroids and positroids, their application to the study of the Amplituhedron and positive geometries.

My CV is available here.
