Research topics

My research is focused on the study of metric measure spaces. I'm interested in the tools that permit to make analysis on such spaces, with a particular taste for the heat kernel. Geometric aspects of certain classes of such spaces, like Gromov-Hausdorff limits of Riemannian manifolds, are also of my interest. In my thesis I worked on CD(0,N) and RCD(K,N) spaces, especially on spectral properties of compact RCD(K,N) spaces.


Other keywords: Riemannian geometry, non-smooth geometry, geometric flows, PI spaces, Dirichlet forms, optimal transport, manifold learning.
