Department of Mathematics - College of Natural Sciences Colorado State University

Dr. Olivier Pinaud joins the Department of Mathematics

Renzo Cavalieri joined the Department of Mathematics at CSU in 2008. He received his PhD at the University of Utah under the supervision of Professor Aaron Bertam. Prior to his arrival at CSU, he was an assistant professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Dr. Cavalieri’s research is related to various aspects of intersection theory of moduli spaces, a field of research straddling algebraic geometry and mathematical physics. In addition to his research, Renzo believes that one of the perks of being a mathematician is being able to share mathematics with others, at all levels. His desire to share mathematics has given him the opportunity to travel the world to present minicourses and speak about his research to a number of undergraduate and graduate students. He has also initiated a cooperation program with the mathematics department of the University of Costa Rica. Currently, Dr. Cavalieri is a PI for a grant supporting WAGS, a bi-yearly conference in Algebraic Geometry gathering most of the community in the western United States. Annually, Renzo hosts a lively seminar group (FRAGMENT) at CSU, which has had many interesting speakers visit our department, campus, and community. He is grateful to the Simons Foundation and to the NSF for supporting his mathematical activities. Dr. Cavalieri has also mentored two senior graduate students, Dusty Ross and Eric Miles. He has enjoyed watching these students mature into fine mathematicians and looks forward to his junior graduate students, Douglas Ortego and David Allen, to journey down the same path.
