There should be a picture here...

I'm interested in arithmetic geometry - in particular, in obstructions to arithmetic properties of rational points and 0-cycles of degree 1 on nice varieties over number fields. In September 2017, I completed my DPhil at University of Oxford under the supervision of Victor Flynn. From October 2017 to September 2019, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn. From September 2019 to July 2020 I was a Marie Curie Fellow at IST Austria in Tim Browning's research group. I am now in Paris working as an Assistant Professor at AUP.

In July 2020 I obtained a Laurea Magistrale in Scienze Filosofiche at Ca' Foscari University of Venice under the supervision of Cecilia Rofena.
I've recently written a book with my father on the geopolitical tensions between USA and China for digital sovereignty. It's published by Luiss University Press. Subliminal message: buy it!
From September to December 2015, I was in Seattle visiting Bianca Viray.
