Bio

“Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.”

—Anaïs Nin, D. H. Lawrence: An Unprofessional Study, Black Spring Press, 1985, p. 20.


I’m a Ph.D. student in Enrique Zuazua‘s “Chair for Dynamics, Control and Numerics” at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (since April 2020). My main research interests lie in the analysis and control of partial differential equations.

From September 2017 to March 2020, I was a Master’s student in Mathematics at Università degli Studi di Bari Aldo Moro (advisors: Stefano BianchiniGiuseppe Maria Coclite, and Luciano Lopez). From September 2014 to March 2018, I was a Bachelor’s student in Mathematics at Università degli Studi di Bari Aldo Moro (advisors: Giuseppe Maria Coclite and Mario Michele Coclite).

In February 2019–September 2019, I held an internship position supervised by Nicole Cusimano and Félix del Teso at The Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM). In September–December 2018, I held a research training fellowship for undergraduate students at SISSA under the supervision of Stefano Bianchini. In June–August 2018, I was an intern in Julian Fischer‘s research group at IST Austria.
