Hi! My name is Riccardo Invernizzi and I’m currently a perfectioning student at KU Leuven. I’m supervised by D. Taufer and Prof. F. Mohammadi. I will start a PhD in April at KU Leuven under the supervision of Prof. F. Mohammadi.
I am interested in number theory, combinatorics and polynomial systems both from theoretical and algorithmic pureviews.

Detailed information about my academic career and working experiences can be found in my CV. The most important points are summarized below.

I also enjoy playing coding competition of various kind, mainly CTF’s and competitive programming. Some challenge writeups can be found in this website. This is not meant to be a professional blog, but rather an archive of problems that I found interesting or code that may be useful in the future. However, feel free to read them and give feedbacks and suggestions.
