Lorenzo Venturello

Postdoc in Mathematics

News: Together with Alessio D'Alì (Universität Osnabrück) and Mariel Supina (UC Berkeley) I am organizing REACT - Online Workshop for Graduate Students. Check it out!

Since October 2020 I am a postdoc in the Combinatorics group at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, under the supervision of Petter Brändén.

Before that I was a postdoc in the Research group in Nonlinear Algebra led by Bernd Sturmfels at the Max Planck Institute of Leipzig. You can find me here.

I obtained my PhD in Mathematics at the Universität Osnabrück, Germany, in the Algebra and Discrete Mathematics group. I worked under the supervision of Martina Juhnke-Kubitzke. I was also part of the DFG research training group "Combinatorial Structures in Geometry".


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.
