Algebraic curves and their moduli spaces, field of moduli versus field of definition, minimal models, complex multiplication, arithmetic aspects on Jacobian varieties. Most of the topics above are being summarized in a book From hyperelliptic to superelliptic curves which hopefully be ready by Summer 2022. Click on the link to check on finished pieces of the book.

I am an editor for the Albanian Journal of Mathematics. The journal started in 2007 and has been published continuously since. It is reviewed by both MathSciNet and zbmath .

Interested authors can send papers to me or any member of the Editorial Board. The reviewing process is about 3 months and the papers are posted online as soon as they are accepted. For more information go to the journal website or contact me directly.
