Giovanni Landi obtained the M.S. degree in theoretical physics from the University of Salerno in 1983, and the Ph.D. degree in mathematics at the International School for Advanced Studies of Trieste in 1988. Presently, at the University of Trieste, he holds positions of Postdoc, Visiting Scientist, and Visiting Professor at the Syracuse University (NY, USA), the Cambridge Universitry (UK), the University of Provence (Marseille, France), the SISSA-ISAS (Trieste, Italy), and the ESI (Vienna, Austria). His scientific activity concerns noncommutative topology and differential geometry, Hopf algebras, and quantum groups. His main lines of research are noncommutative manifolds (construction of metric and spin structures, vector and principal bundles), noncommutative gauge theories (duality equations, constructions of solutions, study of moduli spaces), Hopf algebras and quantum groups (as noncommutative manifolds, their use as generalized symmetries), noncommutative index theorems.
