Alessio Borzì

Published 26.07.2023

My name is Alessio Borzì, I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Nonlinear Algebra group at MPI MiS. I completed my PhD studies at the University of Warwick in 2023 under the supervision of Diane Maclagan.

My research interests lie in Combinatorics and its interactions with Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra. I am interested in tropical geometry and its connections with toric geometry. Matroids are definitely among my favourite objects to study, and I like the fact that they appear in many different contexts, such as hyperplane arrangements, flag varieties and tropical ideals, to name a few.

I am really liking Leipzig so far. I love the nice and welcoming atmosphere it has, as well as its many and diverse shops. I look forward to explore the surroundings!
