Algebraic Geometry with emphasis on the classification of low codimension projective manifods, of projective manifolds covered by lines and more generally of rationally connected manifolds; secand and dual defecite projective manifodls; varieties with one apparent double point; special Cremona transformations; hypersurfaces with vanishing hessian and homaloidal hypersurfaces; rationality questions about smooth hypersurfaces of low degree, principally cubic hypersurfaces in P^{5}.

Algebra: Jordan algebras and power associative algebras and their applications to Algebraic Geometry; Weak and Strong Lefschetz properties for Gorenstein artinian algebras.
