Research interests
- Representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras
- Purity in compactly generated triangulated and finitely accessible additive categories
- Large silting and cosilting theory
- Model theory of modules
The algebra group at the University of Verona will hold a workshop on the topics of purity, approximation theory and spectra. The workshop will be held at the Grand Hotel San Michele, Cetraro in Calabria, Italy.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the PATHS workshop has been postponed. New dates for the workshop will be announced as soon as possible.
Online seminar: FD Seminar

Functorial methods in silting theory
Between January 2019 and December 2020 I will be working on a project funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships program. The project, called Functorial Techniques in Silting Theory, aims to apply methods originating in the model theory of modules to the theory of silting.
A remarkable feature of the model theory of modules is that many model theoretic results can be translated into statements about a certain categories of additive functors and vice versa. This connection with functor categories has given rise to a wide range of foundational results and powerful techniques in representation theory: the so-called theory of purity.
Purity arises naturally in many areas of representation theory, including in the field of silting theory. The focus of silting theory is on distinguished objects determining t-structures whose hearts have particular properties and, if these objects are nice with regards to the theory of purity, then the heart has correspondingly nice properties (for example, a pure-injective cosilting object often determines a heart that is Grothendieck). The idea of this project is to introduce a new perspective on silting theory via the theory of purity and, ultimately, to develop and exploit the connection between the two topics.
