Current Position:
Ricercatore a tempo determinato di tipo B (RTDB, tenure track researcher) at the Department of Mathematics of University of Milan.
I am currently funded by the Program for Young Researchers 'Rita Levi Montalcini' of the Italian Ministry of Research and University.

Previous Positions:
I obtained my doctoral degree from the Department of Mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2015, under the supervision of James McKernan.
From 2019 to 2022, I was a Bernoulli Instructor at the Institute of Mathematics of École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne. Until the end of 2021, I was also a Marie Curie Fellow hosted by the Chair of Algebraic Geometry at EPFL, working on my research project "Birational and moduli problems in algebraic geometry" (BirModProbAG).
From 2015 to 2019 I was a Research Fellow at the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics of the University of Cambridge, and a Fellow and College Lecturer in Pure Mathematics at Churchill College, Cambridge.
During AY 2016/17 I held a visiting position at the Area of Mathematics of SISSA, Trieste, where I joined the group of Jacopo Stoppa as assegnista di ricerca (visiting assistant professor).
