## Scientific activity

Malchiodi received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the International School for Advanced Studies in 2000 having Antonio Ambrosetti as advisor; he is professor of mathematics at the Scuola Normale Superiore at Pisa. He has previously been professor of mathematics at the International School for Advanced Studies and at the University of Warwick. Malchiodi has developed topological and analytical methods allowing to deal with a number of questions in geometric analysis, such as the Yamabe problem, the scalar curvature problem, problems coming from fourth order conformal geometry and concentration for singular perturbation problems. In particular, he has proved some new intricate forms of improved Moser-Trudinger inequalities allowing to prove existence results for singular Liouville equations. Similar types of inequalities allow to prove existence results for Toda systems on surfaces. Malchiodi has been visiting professor in many universities and institutions, amongst which, Stanford University, The Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, ETH at Zurich. He belongs to the editorial board of several mathematical journals and is one of the managing editors of the journal Calculus of Variations & PDE.

## Recognition

Malchiodi has been awarded the Caccioppoli prize in 2006. In 2005 he has been awarded, jointly with Antonio Ambrosetti, the Ferran Sunyer i Balaguer prize. Malchiodi has been included in the list of invited speakers at the 2014 International Congress of Mathematicians in Seoul.
