There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.

  Professor of Mathematics
University of Texas at Austin/ Mathematics Department

My research interests are in the Calculus of Variations
and Geometric Measure Theory

In this homepage you can find my curriculum vitae,
the list of my publications, and some videos and slides.

For the academic year 2016/17 I will be on leave from UT Austin
for joining the International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste
, Italy.
