About me

I am a postdoctoral fellow at SISSA, Trieste. Before that I was at Max-Planck Institut für Mathematik in Bonn. Before that I was a PhD student in Stavanger, under the supervision of Martin Gulbrandsen and Lars H. Halle. Here is my PhD thesis.

Algebraic Geometry Seminar 2020-2021

University of Trieste and SISSA organise the Algebraic Geometry Seminars.
SISSA/IGAP organise a joint reading group on Intersection Theory.


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. My papers can be found on ArXiv and here. Some slides of talks I gave can be found here. Here are my coauthors.

Teaching, Links

Here are lecture notes (under construction: comments welcome!) for the course Techniques in Enumerative Geometry taught at SISSA in Fall 2019. Past teaching.
Here are a few links. The Stacks project. Ravi Vakil's page: upcoming conferences in Algebraic Geometry. Mathscinet (and how to use it from home).

Some things I like

Trieste. Taking pictures. The night sky. Movies. A painting by A. Kowalski. The physical world. What intellectuals used to be like. What CVs used to be like (in italian). B. Obama interviews Sir David Attenborough.
