Lecturer in Mathematics

I am lecturer in Mathematics at Loughborough University, I joined the Department of Mathematical Sciences in August 2016. 

Before that I had postdoc positions at KU Leuven, IMPAN (Warsaw) and Oslo University. 

I got my PhD in 2010 from the University Roma Tre under the supervision of Prof. Ciro Ciliberto.

My work is in Algebraic Geometry, in particular with connections to Commutative Algebra and Combinatorics. 

My research interests include linear systems on higher dimensional varieties, birational geometry, positivity properties of divisors, Newton-Okounkov bodies, the minimal model program, secant varieties and tensor decomposition as well as various aspects of toric and tropical geometry.
