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.

Pietro Boselli was born in Negrar, Italy.
He moved to London in 2007 to get his Mechanical Engineering degree at University College London.
I've dedicated the greatest part of my life to my studies, to research and to engineering. It majorly defined who I am today, and my view of the world. I have never been able to present this aspect of my life on social media, which by necessity are focused on the visual, the immediate and the fashionable. I have written an article on the meaning of being an engineer, which you can find on my website. Link in bio.
The 28-year-old won over the internet in 2015 when his stint as a hot math teacher went viral after a student shared his picture on Facebook.
Boselli said he taught a few subjects including Modeling and Analysis, Computing, and Thermodynamics.
He finished lecturing in 2015 and received his PhD.
Boselli now has his first major modeling deal with Armani. He’ll be the face of Giorgio Armani’s EA7 athletic-inspired line.
It’s not the first time Boselli has worked with Armani. He was actually discovered by the designer when he was six years old in 1995.
He also worked as a runway model for Armani after he turned 18 and has worked on campaigns with Moschino, Equinox, and Vogue.
n February 2016, Boselli launched a website as well as a YouTube channel to keep his fans apprised of his latest adventures.
One of his passions is fitness. Boselli will often post about his routine on his website and Instagram. He says he sometimes goes to the gym two or three times a day.
It definitely shows.
He started swimming when he was five years old before getting into trail and cross-country running.
Now, he’s all about strength training.
“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.
Between his modeling, TV show, and YouTube channel, we’ll be seeing a lot more of Pietro Boselli.
