Olivia Caramello
Mathematician

Olivia Caramello earned a Degree in Mathematics from the University of Turin and a Diploma in Piano at the age of 19, and later a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Trinity College in Cambridge. Then she worked at the University of Cambridge, the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, the University of Paris 7 and the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHES), where since 2020 she has held the Gelfand Chair.She is the author of the book "Theories, Sites, Toposes: Relating and studying mathematical theories through topos-theoretic 'bridges'" (Oxford University Press, 2017) as well as of numerous publications, and has given more than a hundred seminars internationally. She won the "Rita Levi Montalcini" competition of the Ministry of Education, University and Research in 2017 and is currently Associate Professor at the University of Insubria in Como. Olivia Caramello is mostly known for having introduced and developed the unifying theory of topos-theoretic 'bridges', which exploits the existence of different representations for a given topos to establish deep connections between different areas of mathematics. In March 2022, she created the Grothendieck Institute, a foundation under the Italian law devoted to the development of Grothendieckian mathematics and, in particular, of topos theory in a unifying and interdisciplinary sense.
