In 2016 I obtained a Ph.D. in Mathematical Analysis at SISSA – International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste, where I also attended the Master in Complex Actions. Previously I did my Bachelor's and Master's studies in Mathematics at the University of Udine, where I also was a student of the Scuola Superiore of the University. After the Ph.D. I first was a postdoc at the CMAF-CIO of the University of Lisbon, and afterwards I held a fellowship by the National Institute of Higher Mathematics (I.N.d.A.M), which I carried out at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Padova. Since June 2019 I am employed at the Institute of Information Theory and Automation of the Czech Academy of Sciences, in the Department of Decision-Making Theory.

My research activity revolves around the idea of evolution in time of a systems, crossing transversally abstract frameworks (e.g. dynamical systems, periodic solutions of ODEs, rate independent systems), methods (e.g. topological methods, critical point theory, calculus of variations, optimal control) and applications (e.g. Hamiltonian systems, crawling motility, ecological systems).
