I am an associate professor in mathematical physics (MAT/07) at the Department of Physics of the University of Pavia.

My research interests are manifold spanning different branches of theoretical phyiscs and applied mathematics, although most of my works focus on the mathemetical aspects of classical and quantum field theory.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of topics, that I like most :

- Algebraic Quantum Field Theory and all its ramifications (more infos here)
- Quantum Field Theory on Curved Spacetimes (black holes, Hawking radiation, holography…)
- Renormalization and its applications to Stochastic Partial Differential Equations
- The Mathematical Formulation of gauge theories
- Microlocal Analysis and its applications in Quantum Field Theory
