Curriculum Vitae

  • I was born in Soveria Simeri (near Catanzaro, Italy) on the 23rd June 1967.
  • I obtained my first degree "cum laude" from the Dipartimento di Matematica at the Università degli Studi della Calabria on the 15th April 1991 under the supervision of Prof. Daniele C. Struppa.
  • On the 8th January 1992 I went to the Department of Complex Analysis at the Steklov Mathematical Institute Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow) to study for my Ph.D. in Mathematical Analysis under the supervision of Prof. Anatoly G. Vitushkin. During this time I have been an Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica two-year Grant recipient (Borsista) and an Università degli Studi della Calabria one-year Grant recipient.
  • From the 5th November 1995 until the 30th October 1996 I served in the Italian Army at the Scuola del Genio (Roma).
  • From the 8th Jenuary 1996 until 7th Jenuary 1998 I have been a Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche Grant recipient within the Dipartimento di Matematica at the Università degli Studi della Calabria under the supervision of Prof. Paolo A. Oliverio.
  • On the 11th July 1997 I went back to the Steklov Mathematical Institute for a one year stage. I successfully defended my Ph.D. thesis on the 15th May 1998.
  • In the Academic Year 1998-99 I have been a lecturer of a course of Mathematical and Statistical Methods in the Facoltà di Farmacia at the Università degli Studi della Calabria.
  • On the 28th December 1998 I got married to Gemma.
