Hello 👋 I’m Samuël Borza. I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in Mathematics at the Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy.

My research is supported by the ERC Starting Grant (grant agreement
No. 945655) Project GEOSUB - *Geometric
analysis of sub-Riemannian spaces through interpolation inequalities*. I am part of the research team led by
Luca Rizzi.

I graduated from Durham University in the UK, where I obtained my PhD in 2021 under the guidance of Wilhelm Klingenberg.

I help organize the Geometric Structures Research Seminar at SISSA with the research groups of Andrei Agrachev, Antonio Lerario, and Luca Rizzi.

I was a teaching assistant of the course *Mathematical Analysis
II* for second-year engineering students at the University
of Trieste. One distinctive feature of the course is that, among other things, it focuses on introducing
students to the Henstock-Kurzweil
integral, a broader theory of integration that is easier to understand compared to what is typically taught
at
the undergraduate level. Its construction is simple and geometrically comprehensible, akin to Riemann sums, yet more
general than Lebesgue's theory of integration. The course investigator is Alessandro Fonda.

From 2017 to 2021, I was an academic tutor and/or a marker for several courses in the Department of Mathematical
Sciences at Durham University, including *Algebra II*, *Complex Analysis II*, *Partial Differential Equations III* & *IV*, and *Riemannian Geometry IV*.

I was one of the teaching assistants helping in the delivery of the course *Elementary Mathematics* (Fiche ECTS)
to first-year students majoring in Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Mons. The course, offered by the Department of Mathematics, aims to facilitate the
transition from high school to university. Further information on the teaching methodology can be found here (in
French).

I was a teaching assistant for the courses *Mathematics - Supplementary Course* and *Introduction to Differential Manifolds* during the preparation for the summer exam session at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Mons. I helped third-year students in Mathematics and Physics in passing their exams by thoroughly reviewing the course
material and conducting practice sessions using past papers. The curriculum of the first course included topics on convergence of
functions, Fourier transform, Hilbert space theory, and an introduction to the theory of distributions. The second course focused on the differential geometry of curves and surfaces: regular curves and surfaces in Euclidean spaces, Gauss map, First and Second fundamental forms, Gauss's Theorema Egregium.
