Brief Bio: 
 I am a pure mathematician, with research interests in algebra and geometry. I joined Cleveland State University in the Fall of 2018.
Before coming to CSU, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at McMaster University from 2015 to 2018, and a Coleman Postdoctoral Fellow at Queen's University from 2013 to 2015.
I completed my Ph.D. in Mathematics from Northeastern University in 2013 with a thesis on "Free resolutions of orbit closures for representations with finitely many orbits" under the supervision of Jerzy Weyman. My interest in Mathematics and algebra began throughout my undergraduate career at the University of Torino in Italy. 


Research Interests: 
 My research is in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry, with a focus on minimal free resolutions, and their connections with representation theory and combinatorics. Specific topics of interest include finite group actions on free resolutions and the symbolic defect. I am also interested in computational methods in commutative algebra and the development of mathematical software.
