My name is Matteo Tabaro and I am a 3rd year PhD student in Mathematics at Imperial College London. I am originally from Italy, but I have now spent a few good years in London, which I absolutely adore. My main mathematical interest is in dynamical system, or the time evolution of systems governed by some physical law. In my free time, I like to cook and try food from all over the world, talk about modern and contemporary art in front of a good glass of wine, or learn about issues I was previously unaware of through books and literature.

Our events are for adults aged 16 years and over.
