Fields of interest: vector bundles on projective space, curves in projective space (maximal rank, normal bundle, Hilbert schemes, Halphen’s problem,…), smooth surfaces in P^4, volumes in P^5, codimension two subvarieties. The results obtained are the object of more than 70 publications in journals with referee (cf: or MathSciNet). Direction of research: I supervised the research of A. Dolcetti (now "Prof. associato" at Firenze), G. Pareschi (now "Prof. ordinario" at Roma II), V. Beorchia (now "ricercatore" at Trieste), D. Franco (now "Prof. ordinario" at Napoli).
