I'm a PhD student at the Institute for Mathematics at the University of Zurich under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Alberto S. Cattaneo. My subject is Mathematical Physics from the geometric and algebraic point of view, where I'm studying the behavior of Deformation Quantization, BV-BFV formalism, Topological Quantum Field Theories and several aspects of Path integrals and Gauge invariants.
