I was a research fellow (and before a PhD student) at the Mathematics

Department of Pisa, but sometimes you may still find me there.

Now I am a post-doc in Neuchâtel, in the Research Unit “Hyperbolic

Geometry and Combinatorial Structures” supervised by Sasha Kolpakov.

**Interests:** geometric topology, low-dimensional topology.

More specifically: hyperbolic 4-manifolds, deformations of hyperbolic

structures, cone-manifolds, hyperbolic polytopes, surfaces' minimal spines.

**Papers:**

*A four-dimensional geometric transition*, joint with Andrea Seppi.

In preparation.*New hyperbolic 4-manifolds of low volume*, joint with Leone Slavich.

Submitted. ArXiv preprint here.*Hyperbolic Dehn filling in dimension four*, joint with Bruno Martelli.

To appear on*Geometry & Topology*. ArXiv preprint here.*Spines of minimal length*, joint with Bruno Martelli, Matteo Novaga and Alessandra Pluda.

*Annali della Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Classe di Scienze*XVII (2017), 1067-1090.

Supervisor: Bruno Martelli. Referees: Steven Kerckhoff and Joan Porti.

There, you can also find an introduction to hyperbolic cone-manifolds of arbitrary dimension.
