Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Ferrara. 
The branch of mathematics in which I am most interested is Algebraic Geometry, especially in:
 the birational geometry of projective varieties: rational, unirational and rationally connected varieties;
 Mori dream spaces, Fano and log Fano varietie, Cox rings;
 moduli spaces and moduli stacks of curves and stable maps;
 conic bundles and CalabiYau structures on projective 3folds;
 toric, wonderful and spherical varieties;
 varieties of sums of powers, secant varieties and secant defectiveness;
 identifiability and decomposition algorithms for tensors and polynomials.
