Main scientific achievements

My main scientific achievement is the proof of rationality of some moduli spaces of stable vector bundles on rational surfaces (joint work with R.M. Miró-Roig) as well as the classification of vector bundles on algebraic surfaces with certain cohomological properties.


Research Interests

  • Moduli spaces of stable vector bundles on algebraic varieties
  • ACM and Ulrich bundles
  • Derived categories of coherent sheaves
  • Existence of low rank vector bundles on higher dimensional varieties
