Davide Fusi, PhD


My name is Dr. Davide Fusi. I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics and I have been teaching Mathematics at USCB since 2016.  

I earned my undergraduate degree, “Laurea Magistrale in Matematica”, from the Universitá degli Studi di Milano in Milan, Italy in 2005. I completed my first Ph.D. in Mathematics at Universit`a degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy in 2009. My dissertation title was Rationality in Algebraic Geometry. I went on to earn my second PhD in Mathematics at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2012. My dissertation was titled Rationality and Related Problems. 

My research area is algebraic geometry which mainly focuses on rationality problems, birational geometry of higher dimensional varieties and deformation theory. I have published pieces that concern my research interests. I have also presented at many conferences and seminars with these interests. I am also a member of the Mathematical Association of America.  

I have been teaching Mathematics at USCB since 2016 and previously taught at the Ohio State University from 2013-2016. I have taught many Mathematics courses at USCB ranging from College Algebra to the Senior Seminar.  I am a co-founder of USCB’s M.O.S. (Math Opportunities in the Summer) which is a summer program for lowcountry students to learn about Mathematics in a hands-on way with university professors who hope to positively influence their future educational choices and goals.
