Topological and Algebraic Graph Theory. Interested in Graph products and covering graph embeddings, in particular in minimal (genus) and isogonal embeddings of the tensor (direct), strong tensor, and augmented tensor products. The embedding techniques involve voltage graphs and surgery. Distance in graph products, total perfect codes of graph products and enumerative combinatorics are other interests

After obtaining a Ph.D. in mathematics from Northwestern University in
2007, Marco Aldi spent the three years as Charles B. Morrey assistant
professor at the University of California, Berkeley. Supported by an
FRG grant from NSF, he then moved for two years to Brandeis University
where he taught mathematics and was a member of the high energy and
gravitational theory group in the physics department. His research
involves techniques from algebra and geometry to study mathematical
problems arising in string theory. Applications include geometric
quantization, noncommutative geometry, harmonic analysis on
nilmanifolds and the theory of vertex algebras
