Lorenzo Venturello

PhD student in Mathematics

Since October 2016 I am a PhD student in Mathematics at the Universität Osnabrück, Germany, where I am a member of the "Algebra and Discrete Mathematics" group.

I am also part of the DFG research training group "Combinatorial Structures in Geometry".

I work under the supervision of Martina Juhnke-Kubitzke.

My interest lies in the connections and interactions between combinatorics, algebra, geometry and topology. Often combinatorial objects such as polytopes, simplicial complexes, matroids and fans encode properties of a certain associated algebraic object, and viceversa. In the field of combinatorial topology I am interested in triangulations of manifolds, possibly carrying additional structure, and how those can be connected via local moves. In many aspects of my research, programming and the use of specialized softwares are valuable resources.
