About me

I am a mathematician graduated in 2005 from Roma Tre University of Rome. I completed a two-years MSc in pure mathematics in 2008 with a focus on algebraic geometry.

I then turned to applied/financial mathematics and was awarded an MSc in Mathematics and Finance at Imperial College London. The following year I moved to King’s College London and started  a PhD in applied mathematics, which I completed in March 2016 at University College London witha a dissertation on volatility-linked financial products.

Starting November 2012 I worked at the Italian pension funds regulatory agency (COVIP) as a risk and data analyst, and took part to EIOPA working groups on the IORP directive revision.

In 2016 I moved to Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in München and joined the Department of Mathematics – Workgroup Financial and Insurance Mathematics as a Postdoctoral Fellow. I held exercise classes in Numerical Methods for Financial Mathematics and Computational Finance (implementations in Java, Octave/Matlab, R) and carried out activity research.

Besides mathematics, my personal interests are music, cinema and literature. I am a good chess amateur, play guitar and basketball.
