Where I will be in the near future (if not otherwise stated, I will be in Trieste)


I am currently on sabbatical at Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC), Florianópolis, Brazil (from February 1st, 2015 to January 31st, 2016). At UFSC I coordinate a weekly seminar on stacks (write me for information) and participate in the activity of the UFSC Seminar in Geometry .

The International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy, is an institution devoted to research in pure science (mathematics, physics and biology), and to the training of young researchers in these areas through its curricula leading to PhD and Master degrees and its post-doctoral fellowship programme. Via its Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Humanistic and Natural Sciences (ILAS), SISSA is also active in the area of the communication of science and in the development of an interface between the humanistic and scientific worlds.                            

I am in the Mathematical Physics Sector of SISSA. I do my research and teaching in the  area of algebraic and differential geometry and in the geometric methods in string and quantum field theory. If you are interested in pursuing graduates studies in geometry at SISSA, or in a post-graduate fellowship working in geometry or geometry-related mathematical physics at SISSA, or you are in any way interested in the activity of the SISSA Geometry Group, please send me an e-mail.


Research interests: Moduli spaces of framed sheaves, instanton counting, principal and vector (Higgs) bundles on projective and Kaehler manifolds,  moduli spaces of instantons and moduli spaces, mirror symmetry, geometric methods in string and quantum field theory, supermanifolds

I usually teach (under)graduate courses in algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, differential geometry, gauge theory. The notes of my introductory algebraic topology and algebraic geometry course are available in PDF format


Since November 1st, 2003 I am the Executive Editor of the Journal of Geometry and Physics -- a journal devoted to the publication of research papers in the interface between geometry and physics. You are welcome to submit high-quality papers. Please submit online via the Elsevier Editorial System.

Since 1996 I am organizing a series of
Schools & Workshops on Algebraic Geometry and Physics


with C. Bartocci and D. Hernandez Ruiperez, The Geometry of Supermanifolds, Kluwer 1991

with C. Bartocci and D. Hernandez Ruiperez, Fourier-Mukai and Nahm transforms in geometry and mathematical physics, Progress in Mathematics 276, Birkhauser 2009.
