Luca Capogna

I enjoy teaching and communicating mathematics. It is very important to be able to convey the relevance of mathematicians’ research to students, to scientists in other disciplines and to the community at large. At the same time it is also crucial to be able to receive ideas and open problems from these communities and invest in mathematical research that is relevant to them. Read more...

I am a postdoctoral scholar at WPI, working on problems related to infinite periodic graphs. I am interested in investigating when such a graph is rigid – if I constructed the graph out of stiff bars and flexible joints would the resulting “framework” be rigid? I look at these infinite graphs as graphs embedded on a topological torus, and try to analyze their properties in that “finite-ized” setting. Read more...
