About Me

Welcome to my webpage

Since September, 2023, I am a postdoctoral researcher at CMU (Carnegie Mellon University), mentored by prof. Robin Neumayer. I completed my Ph.D. at IME-USP, under the supervision of prof. Stefano Nardulli and prof. Camillo De Lellis, which included two long-term visits in the Fields Institute and Princeton University.

My research lies within the fields of Geometric Analysis and Geometric Measure Theory. I kindly invite you to click on the Menu to get more info about me, my research and activities.

                  • My Research

                    My main field of research is geometric measure theory (GMT). I am also interested in geometric analysis, calculus of variations, and some aspects of PDEs.
                    Currently, I am focused on regularity issues in GMT. For instance, regularity of currents/Caccioppoli sets minimizing an elliptic integrand and properties of their singular sets. Some questions concerning, specifically, the area integrand and its minimizing currents in high codimension (i.e., using Almgren-De Lellis-Spadaro's techniques) are also being part of my daily thoughts. Another direction I'm heading to is the regularity of stationary varifolds (more generally, with p-integrable generalized mean curvature) w.r.t. anisotropic integrands.
