## Davide Fusi, PhD

### Associate Professor of Mathematics

My name is Dr. Davide Fusi. I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics and I have been teaching Mathematics at USCB since 2016.

I earned my undergraduate degree, “Laurea Magistrale in Matematica”, from the Universitá degli Studi di Milano in Milan, Italy in 2005. I completed my first Ph.D. in Mathematics at Universitá degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy in 2009. My dissertation title was Rationality in Algebraic Geometry. I went on to earn my second PhD in Mathematics at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2012. My dissertation was titled Rationality and Related Problems.

My research area is in algebraic geometry. Namely, I am interested inrationality problems, birational geometry of higher dimensional varieties and deformation theory. I have published research papers and I have also presented at many conferences and seminars in the field. I am also a member of the Mathematical Association of America.

I have been teaching Mathematics at USCB since 2016 and previously taught at the Ohio State University from 2013-2016. I have taught many Mathematics courses at USCB ranging from College Algebra to the Senior Seminar. I am a co-founder of the USCB Math Bootcamp and of the USCB’s M.O.S. (Math Opportunities in the Summer). In particular, USCB’s M.O.S. is a summer program for lowcountry students to learn about Mathematics in a hands-on way with university professors who hope to positively influence their future educational choices and goals.
