Alberto Cattaneo

Since September 2019, I am a Postdoc at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics in Bonn, working with Georg Oberdieck. I am part of the Complex Geometry group led by Daniel Huybrechts.

Previously, I was a Riemann fellow at the Institute of Algebraic Geometry in Hannover and a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn. I completed my PhD in December 2018 under the joint supervision of Alessandra Sarti (Université de Poitiers) and Bert van Geemen (Università degli Studi di Milano).
