About me

I am assistant professor (rtd-b) at SISSA, Trieste, in the group Geometry and Mathematical Physics. Here is my CV.

Research & Writings

I work in Algebraic Geometry, mostly on enumerative aspects such as sheaf counting on Calabi–Yau varieties, motivic and K-theoretic Donaldson–Thomas invariants. I am also interested in moduli of curves, derived categories of coherent sheaves, semiorthogonal decompositions and Fourier–Mukai transforms.
