Algebra and related fields

I am a postdoc at the University of Genoa, supported by INdAM.

Research Interests
Commutative algebra, homological algebra and algebraic combinatorics.

I am interested in minimal free resolutions and sygyzies, combinatorial commutative algebra and effective methods. I am also interested in Homological methods and invariants, in particular homological dimensions, derived category methods.

The topics that I am paying attention to include ordinary and symbolic powers of ideals, free resolutions over Koszul algebras.
See my
CV and research page for more details if you are interested.

"Từ phác thảo đến tác phẩm, con đường ấy phải quỳ mà đi." (Vladimír Holan)

"Having seen the silk paintings of a fellow painter today, I think he drew it too meticulously, and his paintings are stiff and lacking of intimacy that way. I had told him one should study the subject closely, as closely as possible, and prepare the drawing materials carefully, the more carefully the better, but when it comes to drawing, one should be as innocent as a playing child. But my words were futile for he draws in order to sell his art, and his drawing method aptly assists his business." (Rough translation from the art diary "Viết dưới ánh đèn dầu" of Bùi Xuân Phái)
