Research Interests

My background is in Mathematical Gauge Theory but I lean much more towards the algebro-geometric side. I study moduli of algebraic bundles and sheaves and more recently, applications of "Abstract Algebraic Geometry" to moduli problems. I was one of the founders of Fourier-Mukai Transform Theory following Mukai's ground breaking papers and now work on the interface with Bridgeland stability conditions.

I also have an interest in Mathematical Education and especially applications of AIED as well as certain aspects of the foundations of mathematics: Set Theory, Mathematical Logic and Category Theory.

Biographical Statement

I am an Italian-Scot born in Scotland and married to Penny Morris with two children: Olivia and Ryan. My academic career includes degrees from Oxford and Cambridge and research fellowships held in Edinburgh. My PhD supervisor was Professor Sir Simon Donaldson and was in the subject of Gauge Theory. But I have always had a strong interest in Algebraic Geometry and especially its abstract aspects. I also have a keen interest in Mathematical Education having been involved with a number of SFC funded projects in collaborative teaching in Scotland. I also have an interest in various aspects of the Foundations of Mathematics.
