I am a postdoc at Loughborough University (fancy job title above). I am sponsored by the EPSRC via this scheme.

Previously I was a postdoc for one year at Università Roma 3, sponsored by MIUR-project FIRB 2012 "Moduli spaces and their applications" . Even before, I got my PhD in 2017 at the University of Warwick, with Miles Reid as advisor. Broadly speaking I am an Hodge theorist: you can find below an (almost) detailed list of my research interests. For a more detailed CV click here.

Research interests:

  • Fano manifolds of K3 and Calabi-Yau type and link with hyperkähler geometry. Explicit construction of surfaces of general type with small pg,K2 and Calabi-Yau quotients in low dimension. Explicit constructions of varieties in Grassmannians, mainly as zero set of section of homogeneous vector bundles and their Hodge theory.
  • Fano and Calabi-Yau varieties in Weighted Projective Spaces. Explicit birational classification, especially of Q -Fano threefolds.
  • Problems in Hodge Theory: Torelli-type. Links between Hodge Theory and deformation problems (e.g. deformation of cones).
