Roberto Palomba is the substitute teacher for math and science (and some languages…) at Fusion Academy – Park Avenue Campus. Originally from Napoli, Italy, Roberto grew up in the south of France, and came to the U.S. to study advanced mathematics. A graduate of the University of Mary Washington — B.S. with Honors in Mathematics — and New York University – M.S. Financial Mathematics,– Roberto spent some time doing financial modeling on Wall Street. But after years of abstract and applied mathematical theory, Roberto became interested in the philosophical groundings of math and science, while also growing to love teaching and translating. He began tutoring kids and adults in math and science, while further pursuing his own education, attending The New School for Social Research for a graduate degree in philosophy. His philosophical interests include epistemology, Kant, the philosophy of science, time and causality.
When not reading and studying, given his background, Roberto loves connecting with people from different places, and sharing ideas and cultural knowledge. He enjoys learning languages and also loves to cook, especially traditional Neapolitan dishes. Roberto always wants to travel to new places, but nothing compares to going back to Naples, where generations and generations of his family is from. He is also, naturally, an ardent fan of the Napoli soccer team.
