My research interests lie on objects in algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, and multi-linear algebra. My current research focus is on the study of problems in multi-linear algebra from an algebro-geometric viewpoint.

  • Varieties of completely decomposable forms and their secants. J. Algebra 403 (2014), 135–153.
  • On the dimensions of secant varieties of Segre-Veronese varieties (together with Maria Chiara Brambilla), Ann. Mat. Pura Appl.(4) 192 (2013), no. 1, 61-92.
  • New examples of defective secant varieties of Segre-Veronese varieties (together with Maria Chiara Brambilla), Collect. Math. 63 (2012), no. 3, 287-297.
