Curriculum

My research activity is in the field of the Calculus of Variations and of the Analysis of PDEs. In particular, I study variational problems arising in the modelling of soft active materials. A big part of my research is also devoted to the study of geometric properties of elliptic PDEs, in the framework of the classical potential theory and in general relativity.
