I am a mathematician working as Associate Professor at the University of Insubria in Como. I am also affiliated to the Université Paris-Saclay. Since March 2022, I am the President of the Grothendieck Institute, an Italian foundation devoted to interdisciplinary research in the mathematical sciences.

Since the beginning of my Ph.D. studies, my research has focused on investigating the role of Grothendieck toposes as unifying spaces in Mathematics and Logic.

My main contribution has been the development of the unifying theory of topos-theoretic 'bridges', consisting in methods and techniques for transferring information between distinct mathematical theories by using toposes.

These methodologies are interdisciplinary in character and, even though they find their theoretical and most natural expression in Mathematics, they can also be applied outside it, in subjects such as Physics, Computer Science, Linguistics and Philosophy.

The Centre for Topos Theory and its Applications of the Grothendieck Institute is notably devoted to developing the theory of toposes as 'bridges' and its applications.
