Dr. Martinelli joined the University of Amsterdam in October 2019. She holds a Ph.D. from Imperial College, London UK and was a postdoctoral fellow at theUniversity of Edinburgh. Her work aims to study effectivity questions on algebraic varieties related to their underlying topology as complex manifolds. She is also interested in positive characteristic methods, moduli spaces, and Calabi-Yau manifolds. Currently, she is interested in the interplay between Bi-rational Geometry of moduli spaces of K3s surfaces and Bridgeland stability conditions. Her research interests are in algebraic geometry and in particular, in higher-dimensional birational geometry.
