Francesco ChiniFrancesco is interested in geometry and partial differential equations. His research for the PhD will concern geometric flows, particularly the study of singularities and solitons in mean curvature flow and its connections with the theory of minimal surfaces.

Francesco’s PhD advisors will be Niels Martin Møller and Bergfinnur Durhuus.

Francesco has his bachelor's as well as master's ("On Some Splitting Theorems in Riemannian Geometry", July 2016) from the University of Trento, Italy. In the past he additionally studied for one year at the University of Helsinki, Finland, via the Erasmus exchange project.
