# About

I am a postdoc in the Numerical analysis group. My research interests are in linear algebra and numerical linear algebra. I am currently working on matrix functions with Nick Higham.

Other interests include matrix polynomials, polynomial eigenvalue problems and polynomial root-finding. Before moving to Manchester I completed my Ph.D. at University of Pisa (Italy), where I worked on such topics.

My Erdös number is currently equal to 4.

I also organise the Manchester NASC seminars.
