Biography


Dr Roberto Svaldi earned his M.S. in Mathematics at Università degli Studi Roma 3 under the guidance of Professor Lucia Caporaso and his Doctorate in Mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology under the guidance of Professor James McKernan in 2015.

He is interested in the study of algebraic varieties, geometrical objects described as the zeroes of polynomials, such as parabolas, ellipses, hyperbolas.

He studies how these objects change their shape under special transformations and attempts at using these transformations to create new objects with simpler geometry starting from a given one.
