Michele Caselli

Allievo del Corso di Perfezionamento/PhD



Michele Caselli obtained his bachelor's degree in Mathematics in 2019 from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and subsequently the master's degree in Mathematics from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich). Since 2021 he has been a PhD student in mathematics under the supervision of Andrea Malchiodi (Scuola Normale Superiore) and Joaquim Serra (ETH Zurich).

His research interests are generally in geometric analysis, calculus of variations, and partial differential equations. In particular, the use of phase transition models (such as the Allen-Cahn functional and the Ginzburg-Landau model) for the approximation and existence of classical and fractional minimal surfaces. Moreover, he has also worked on the regularity theory of obstacle problems.
