Spelta, Irene

I am a Maria de Maeztu postdoctoral fellow at Centre de Recerca Matemàtica working in the group of Juan Carlos Naranjo.

Previously, I was a postdoc at the University of Pavia funded by the Italian Institute of Mathematics (INdAM). There I worked in the group of Paola Frediani. Moreover, I spent some months as a postdoctoral researcher at IMUB.

I obtained my PhD at the University of Pavia in 2020.

My research interests lie in Algebraic Geometry. In particular, I study moduli of curves and of abelian varieties.
