Curriculum

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 mathematics.

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:

  1. Grassmann geometries and their embeddings
  2. unitals [1,3,13,16] and Hermitian varieties over finite fields [M1,Q5,4,5,6,7]
  3. codes arising from geometrical constructions [M2,8,12,18]
  4. maximal arcs [9,10] and hyperovals [11]
  5. graph decompositions and related constructions [15,14,17]
  6. cryptography [B1,Q6].
