Braided Thompson groups with and without quasimorphisms, joint with Yash Lodha and Matt Zaremsky, 22 pages. We studied second bounded cohomology and quasimorphisms of braided Thompson groups such as $bV, bF$, or their ribbon cousins such as $rV$. These exhibit some interesting bounded cohomological behaviours. To appear in Algebraic & Geometric Topology.

Bounded cohomology and binate groups, joint with Clara Löh and Marco Moraschini, 33 pages. We proved that binate groups are boundedly acyclic, i.e. their bounded cohomology vanishes in every positive degree. This essentially contains all previously known nonamenable examples (at the time of posting) and includes many groups of homeomorphisms. To appear in Journal of the Australian Mathematical Society.

Bounded cohomology of finitely presented groups: Vanishing, nonvanishing and computability, joint with Clara Löh and Marco Moraschini, 30 pages. We provided the first examples of nonamenable finitely generated and finitely presented groups for which it is possible to compute bounded cohomology in all degrees: these include boundedly acyclic groups (with vanishing in every degree) and groups with large bounded cohomology (with strong nonvanishing in every degree). Moreover, we proved that vanishing of bounded cohomology is not algorithmically decidable. To appear in Annali della Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Classe di Scienze.

Normed amenability and bounded cohomology over nonArchimedean fields, 92 pages. I studied natural notions of amenability and bounded cohomology over nonArchimedean fields (with particular attention to the field $\mathbb{Q}_p$ of $p$adic numbers), and the way they interact. This is all done for totally disconnected locally compact groups, with the last (independent) section on bounded cohomology of topological spaces. To appear in Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society.

Ulam stability of lamplighters and Thompson groups, joint with Bharatram Rangarajan, 27 pages. We prove Ulam stability of lamplighters of the form $\Gamma \wr \Lambda$, where $\Lambda$ is infinite and amenable, as well as several groups of dynamical origin such as Thompson's groups $F, F', T$ and $V$. The proof uses a new cohomology theory called asymptotic cohomology, introduced in this paper, and along the way we prove several new results about asymptotic cohomology. We also tackle metric approximation questions for such groups, with respect to unitary and symmetric groups.

Property (NL) for group actions on hyperbolic spaces, joint with Sahana Balasubramanya and Anthony Genevois, with Appendix by Alessandro Sisto, 44 pages. We introduce and study property (NL), standing for "no loxodromics": a group $G$ is said to have property (NL) if it admits as few actions on hyperbolic spaces as possible (i.e. only elliptic and parabolic). We produce many examples of groups with property (NL), mainly Thompsonlike groups, and prove that property (NL) is stable under several natural group constructions. Alessandro Sisto's appendix describes a method to associate to an action of $G$ on a hyperbolic space, another action that is moreover cobounded, and keeps several useful properties from the original action.

Finitely presented left orderable monsters, joint with Yash Lodha and Matt Zaremsky, 12 pages. A left orderable monster is a finitely generated group acting faithfully on the real line, all of whose actions on the line are globally contracting (i.e. as complicated as possible). The first examples emerged in the last few years, and are all infinitely presented and quite complicated to construct. We provide an elementary construction that moreover produces the first finitely presented (and even type $F_\infty$) examples.

Hopfian wreath products and the stable finiteness conjecture, joint with Henry Bradford, 28 pages. We study the problem of when a wreath product $\Delta \wr \Gamma$ is Hopfian, for finitely generated Hopfian groups $\Delta$ and $\Gamma$. Our main result establishes a strong connection between the case in which $\Delta$ is abelian, and the direct and stable finiteness conjectures of Kaplansky in group rings. Namely the latter hold true if and only if $\Delta \wr \Gamma$ is Hopfian whenever $\Delta$ is finitely generated and abelian and $\Gamma$ is finitely generated and Hopfian.

Autinvariant quasimorphisms on groups, joint with Ric Wade, 17 pages. We proved that for $G$ in a large class of groups that includes nonelementary hyperbolic groups and nonvirtually abelian RAAGs and RACGs, there is an infinitedimensional space of homogeneous quasimorphisms on $G$ that are invariant under the action of the automorphism group. The case of the free group of rank at least $3$ settles a question of Miklós Abert.

Median quasimorphisms on CAT(0) cube complexes and their cup products, joint with Benjamin Brück and Clara Löh, 34 pages. We extended vanishing results on cup products of Brooks quasimorphisms of free groups to cup products of median quasimorphisms, i.e., Brookstype quasimorphisms of group actions on CAT(0) cube complexes. Special attention is paid to groups acting on trees and rightangled Artin groups.

No quasiisometric rigidity for proper actions on CAT(0) cube complexes, joint with Anthony Genevois, 12 pages. We exhibited groups acting properly and cocompactly on CAT(0) cube complexes, with quasiisometric groups that do not admit any proper actions on a CAT(0) cube complex, settling a question of Niblo, Sageev and Wise.

Finitely generated simple left orderable groups with vanishing second bounded cohomology, joint with Yash Lodha, 18 pages. We proved that the finitely generated simple left orderable groups constructed by Yash and James Hyde in this paper have vanishing second bounded cohomology, settling a question from Navas's 2018 ICM problem list.

Second bounded cohomology of groups acting on $1$manifolds and applications to spectrum problems, joint with Yash Lodha, 28 pages. We provided a simple dynamical criterion for second bounded cohomology vanishing, and applied it to settling several questions about the bounded cohomology of leftorderable groups, the spectrum of stable commutator length, and the spectrum of simplicial volume. We had previously only looked at stable commutator length, and that result is presented in a selfcontained way in the preprint Algebraic irrational stable commutator length in finitely presented groups.

Ultrametric analogues of Ulam stability of groups, 87 pages. I studied stability of metric approximations of groups, when the approximating groups are endowed with biinvariant ultrametrics. The main case study is a $p$adic analogue of Ulam stability, where unitary matrices are replaced by integral $p$adic ones.

Infinite sums of Brooks quasimorphisms and cup products in bounded cohomology, 66 pages. This is my Master Thesis, in which I studied infinite sums of Brooks quasimorphisms with combinatorial methods, and provided new classes of quasimorphisms of the free group which have trivial cup product in bounded cohomology. It was supervised by Alessandra Iozzi and Konstantin Golubev.
Chapter in book
 In: Bounded Cohomology and Simplicial Volume  see "Editorial work" below. I wrote Chapter 9: "Extension of quasicocycles from hyperbolically embedded subgroups", 15 pages. The text is an exposition of this paper, thought for people who are interested in bounded cohomology but are not necessarily familiar with the notions from geometric group theory that are involved. It is a more detailed version of a "What is?" talk that I gave (see below).
Expository paper
 Comments on "Discrete Groups, Expanding Graphs and Invariant Measures", by Alexander Lubotzky, 74 pages. This is a semester paper that I wrote during the first semester of my Masters at ETH. The goal was to fill in the details of the first four chapters of this wonderful book, and add a couple new things. It was supervised by Alessandra Iozzi and Konstantin Golubev.
Editorial work
 Bounded Cohomology and Simplicial Volume, edited jointly with Caterina Campagnolo, Nicolaus Heuer and Marco Moraschini, 170 pages. These are proceedings from the "What is?" style seminar that was held online during the Fall Semester of 2020. It includes 12 chapters that should serve as a gentle introduction to young researchers in the field to topics of current research interest. Published in the LMS Lecture notes series.
