### Giordano Cotti

##### P.I. of the project

**Giordano Cotti** graduated with a BSc in Mathematics, cum laude, from the *University of Genova (Italy)* in 2012.

Through an Italian national competition, he was selected for an excellence MSc program (with fellowship) in Mathematics hold by the *University of Trieste* and the *Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA)* in Trieste (Italy). Such a program is addressed to brilliant students who want to follow a high-level research career.

He graduated in 2014, cum laude, and he earned an additional PFC-SISSA diploma, having fulfilled all the merit requirements.

Subsequently, through an international competition, he obtained a PhD fellowship at *SISSA*, where he continued the research projects started in his MSc thesis, working under the supervision of **Professor Boris Dubrovin** and **Professor Davide Guzzetti**. He obtained his PhD in Geometry and Mathematical Physics in 2017, cum laude. In 2019, *SISSA* also awarded him the Lutman Prize for the best PhD thesis in Mathematics of the Academic Year 2017, in acknowledgment of his original work.

From October 2017 to October 2019, he was posdoct at the *Max-Planck Insitut für Mathematik in Bonn (Germany)*, with mentor **Yuri I. Manin**. From November 2019 to October 2020, he was postdoc at the *University of Birmingham (UK)*, with mentor **Marta Mazzocco**.
