Since July 2020 I am a Senior Lecturer (tenure position) in the Department of Pure Mathematics at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney that I joined in July 2018 as a Lecturer.
I was previously a Research Assistant at the University of Rome Tor Vergata in the team of Professor Roberto Longo, an Assistant Professor at Vanderbilt University (USA) under the guidance of Professor Dietmar Bisch and a Postdoctoral Researcher in the group of Professor Stefaan Vaes in KU Leuven (Belgium).
I was honoured to be co-supervised by Fields Medalist Vaughan Jones at UC Berkeley and by Professor Andrzej Zuk at the University of Paris Diderot for my Ph.D. that I completed in 2011 in Paris.
Here is an interview of myself (in french) realized by Camille Saumard for the company LumenAi.
2016. Winner of the Samir Aldroubi and Amira Azhari Prize for Excellence in Postdoctoral Research which is awarded every two years to recognize the research achievements of current and recent postdoctoral fellows in the department of Mathematics of Vanderbilt University, USA.
Some of my recent themes of interest include the following:
-Operator algebraic treatment of lattice gauge theories;
-Actions of Thompson groups constructed via Jones' technology;
-Actions of locally compact groups on von Neumann algebras;
-Classification and analytical properties of subfactors/tensor categories.
