**Sebastiano** Nicolussi Golo

I am a Senior Researcher at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Fribourg, in the Canton of Fribourg (in Switzerland), which is outside the European Union, but still on planet Earth.

My main areas of research are:

**Metric Geometry**,**Geometric Measure Theory**,**Lie Group Theory**,**sub-Riemannian Geometry**,**Analysis on Metric Spaces**,**Harmonic Analysis**.

Primarily, I study Lie groups equipped with non-Riemannian distances such as Carnot-Carathéodory distances.
**Carnot-Carathéodory Geometry**,
also called sub-Riemannian Geometry,
deals with geometric spaces of fractal nature arising
from several contexts,
such as Hyperbolic Geometry,
Geometric Group Theory,
Theory of Hypoelliptic Operators
and Control Theory.

I obtained a double PhD degree in 2017 from the University of Jyväskylä (Finland, EU) and from the University of Trento (Italy, EU), under the supervision of Enrico Le Donne and Francesco Serra Cassano. I later worked in Birmingham (UK) with Alessio Martini for one year, and in Padova (IT, EU) with Davide Vittone for one year and a half. From 2020 to 2023, I have been a postdoc at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Jyväskylä in Finland (EU), under the supervision of Katrin Fässler and of Enrico Le Donne.

Then, I took a break in the academic year 2023–2024, when I lived in the Zen monastery Fudenji.

As of 2024, I am working in the academy, under the supervision of my boss, mentor and friend Enrico Le Donne.

# Special Pages

- Thematical Seminar 2024
- A tentative bibliographic list for BV functions on Carnot groups
- There is a small but very energetic community of Buddhist monks and nuns on the hills of Parma.
Their home is called Fudenji, the
*Temple of the Universal Teaching*. The strict rule of their practice embrace everyone who knocks at their door, in the effort of following the Way, the way from me to you.

In a world where equality is thought as the key of peace, while difference the key of war, they work every day between illusions and enlightment to make*difference*the key of our encouter. After forty years of exercise and construction, the moment has come to build what alone reunites earth and sky, past and future, ancestors and descendants: the Pagoda.
