**Didactic activity**

I have been teaching assistant (with blackboard lessons, review sessions, examination sessions) for several undergraduate courses.

From 2006 to 2011 I have been teaching assistant for** 8** one-semester courses in* Rational Mechanics* and **1** course in *Applied Mathematics* at the Engineering Faculty of University of Bologna.

In 2012-2013 I have been teaching assistant for a *Calculus* course at the Engineering Faculty of University of Pavia.

In 2014-2016 I led Exercise Courses in:

*Linear Algebra* (2014, summer semester)

*Modeling* (2015, winter semester)

*Stochastic* (2015, summer semester)

*Real Analysis in several variables and Complex Analysis in one variable* (2015, sommer semester)

*Algebra* (2016, summer semester)

*Stochastic* (2016, summer semester)

for bachelor students at the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Vienna.

In the winter semester 2016-2017 I led a Lecture Course in *Continuum Mechanics* for master's students at the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Vienna.
