My name is spelled Federico, not Frederico, unlike most languages. My full given name is Federico Giovanni, if you are not into the whole brevity thing, but I drop the middle name whenever I can.
Federico Giovanni Poloni, born 1983-01-01 in Treviglio, Italy. I have achieved a bachelor (2005) and master (2007) degree in Mathematics at the University of Pisa (Italy), while attending the complementary honours programme (Corso Ordinario) of the Scuola Normale Superiore (info), whose final diploma I obtained in 2008. In 2010 I obtained my PhD degree (diploma di perfezionamento) at the Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, supervised by Dario Bini and Beatrice Meini.
I have been an Alexander Von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow (info) at the Technische Universität Berlin in 2011–2012.
I currently have a Ricercatore universitario position at the Computer Science Department of the University of Pisa. It is a research-oriented permanent junior academic role at the assistant professor level.
I have been interested in mathematical problem solving competitions since high school. As a contestant, I have achieved national and international awards, such as a bronze medal at the 2002 International Mathematical Olympiad (info) and a first place in the 2004 Championnat International de Jeux Mathématiques (info). Now I am a member of the organizing committee of the Italian Mathematical Olympiad (site). I help organizing the contests and give lectures on solution strategies at all levels.
