About me

I am Lecturer in the Disordered Systems Group of the Mathematics Department at King’s College London.


After a two-year postdoc in the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas in Rio de Janeiro, I have been post-doctoral researcher in Statistical Physics at Sapienza Università di Roma, in the group of Giorgio Parisi. I have then been postdoc in the group of Florent Krzakala, first at the École normale supérieure in Paris and then at the École Polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, in Switzerland. Since January 2021, I am at KCL.

I obtained my PhD at the University of Pisa in 2015, under the supervision of Sergio Caracciolo (University of Milan & SNS). You can find the manuscript of my PhD thesis here.

I graduated in Lecce, Italy, at University of Salento in 2011. I wrote my thesis under the supervision of Rosario Antonio Leo (University of Salento) and Piergiulio Tempesta (Universidad Complutense de Madrid).

Research interests

During my PhD I started, under the supervision of Sergio Caracciolo and in collaboration with Carlo Lucibello and Giorgio Parisi, an investigation of random matching problems. We obtained interesting results on many properties of optimal matchings (average optimal cost, correlation functions, finite-size corrections). This line of research is still going on with many other people.

Recently I also worked with Fernanda Benetti, Giorgio Parisi and Francesca Pietracaprina on simple models for the density of states of amorphous solids. Our results were based on random-spring models defined on random graphs, solved by means of exact diagonalization techniques and cavity method.
