” The moment when you realised you Maths lecturer is one of the top designer model ..” a student posted on Facebook after they found out about his other job. 26-year-old maths lecturer and PhD student Pietro Boselli describes himself as ‘nerdy’, but the internet would beg to differ.
He was teaching at University College London (UCL). At the same time, he’s also a model for Giorgio Armani, LOVE MOSCHINO and Equinox.
He tells BBC, his students sometimes lose focus, and keep taking sneaky snaps when he’s not looking. Gosh.. i totally understand.. who can resist a good looking Maths lecturer right?!
Pietro was discovered at the age of 6 and began modelling for Armani Junior. He later went on to study mechanical engineering at UCL, graduating with a first class honours Bachelor of Engineering degree in 2010. He started his Doctor of Philosophy candidature in 2010.
During his PhD candidature, Pietro taught undergraduate mathematics to mechanical engineering students. But sometimes he has to work a bit harder to convince his students he’s the real deal in engineering too.
“They’re a bit set back because obviously I’ve a younger appearance… So I need to sort of convince them that I’m good at what I’m doing and I need to put in that extra effort.”
So would he ever give up one profession to concentrate on the other?
“Obviously modelling is probably not as long-term as engineering would be – for obvious reasons – but you know, whilst I have it I don’t see why I should give it up.”
