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), in the framework of the Mathtech–CNR–INdAM project, which I carried out at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Padova. In June 2019 I moved to the Institute of Information Theory and Automation of the Czech Academy of Sciences, in the Department of Decision-Making Theory, at first as a postdoc and, since January, 2020 as a researcher.
For the period 2021–2025 I am principal investigator of the GAČR Junior Star project: Advanced analytical methods for soft locomotion.

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).
