Bruno Benedetti is an assistant professor in the Math Department at U Miami. His research is focused on the intersection of Geometry and Combinatorics; in particular, he exploits algebraic, metric, and probabilistic tools to tackle long-standing problems in PL manifold theory, in convexity, and in algorithmic topology. Bruno received his Ph.D. from the Berlin Mathematical School (2010), and held postdoctoral positions in Stockholm and Berlin, before joining the University of Miami in 2015.
