My name is Alberto Tacchella. I am a researcher in mathematical
physics, currently on sabbatical leave.
Broadly speaking, I am interested in the mathematical modeling of
physical systems, using the methods of modern (algebraic and/or
differential) geometry. I also have a life-long interest in computer
programming and its foundations, including type theory and formal
