The ‘world’s hottest math teacher’ has a PhD in engineering and models for Armani

28-year-old Peitro Boselli went viral in 2015 after one of his University College London students posted a picture of him on Facebook.

“That moment when you realized your maths lecturer is one of the top designer model[s],” Arief Azli wrote. The post ended up getting nearly 2,000 likes. Boselli was called the “world’s hottest math teacher” by publications ranging from People Magazine to The Guardian.

The Italian-born Boselli was then a UCL visiting lecturer getting his PhD in mechanical engineering. Today? He has his PhD — his graduation ceremony is this September — and he’s now signed on to an Armani campaign.

“I always believed that fitness is about lifestyle, more than anything,” Boselli wrote on his website. “Walking to places, taking the stairs, being up early in the morning, embracing outdoor activities and putting real effort and passion in the workouts.”


Aside from his passion for engineering, modeling, and working out, Boselli is also into acting. He’s going to star in an episode of the MTV show Trippers, where he will travel to and explore New South Wales.
