Nicola Gigli studied Mathematics at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa and is Professor of Mathematical Analysis at SISSA, Trieste. He is interested in calculus of variations, optimal transport, and geometric and nonsmooth analysis, with particular focus on properties of spaces with curvature bounded from below.
Enrico Pasqualetto earned his PhD degree in Mathematics at SISSA (Trieste) in 2018 and is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Jyväskylä. His fields of interest consist in functional analysis and geometric measure theory on non-smooth metric structures, mainly in the presence of synthetic curvature bounds. Within this framework, his research topics include rectifiability properties, Sobolev spaces, and sets of finite perimeter.
