Luca Giuzzi, DPhil (Sussex)
Luca Giuzzi graduated in Mathematics in 1996 with dissetation on
"Frobenius Groups and related geometric structures". He was awarded a grade of
110 cum laude/110. From 1997 till 2000 he has been a doctoral student at University of Sussex (UK) where in 2001 he succesfully defended his dissertation `Hermitian Varieties over Finite Fields', obtaining the degree of DPHIL.
From 2000 till 2005 he has been a research fellow (assegnista di ricerca) at Università degli studi di Brescia; in 2005 he become research associate (ricercatore) in geometry at Politecnico di Bari. Since 2008 he has been working as a ricercatore confermato at
Università degli Studi di Brescia.
In 2004 first and ever since 2006 he has been responsible for courses at both
undergraduate and graduate level in several Italian universities. He has also
been a supervisor for some bachelor and master level dissertations
In the last few years L.Giuzzi has given several communications
at international conferences as well as some invited talks at
different universities. He has been among the organisers of national ("XVIII congresso UMI", Bari 2007) and international conferences
("Combinatorics 2008", Brescia2008).
He has published 26 papers on international refereed journals, 1 book on
error correcting codes and holds 1 patent shared with others.
His research is mostly concerned with finite geometric
structures and designs endowed with a rich automorphism group as well
as their applications to coding theory and cryptography.
In more detail he is currently interested in:
Grassmann geometries and their embeddings
unitals [1,3,13,16] and Hermitian varieties over finite fields [M1,Q5,4,5,6,7]
codes arising from geometrical constructions
maximal arcs [9,10] and hyperovals 
graph decompositions and related constructions [15,14,17]
