I did my PhD under the supervision of Tamas Hausel at EPFL and the Institue of Science and Technology Austria . From 2017-2019 I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Sorbonne University Paris 6 with François Loeser. Since September 2019 I hold the chair of arithmetic geometry at EPFL as a tenure track assistant professor. For more information see my CV.
I work in algebraic and arithmetic geometry. My research uses ideas from p-adic and motivic integration to study the interplay between geometric and arithmetic aspects of the cohomolgy of algebraic varieteis. We have found applications of the ideas to moduli spaces appearing in mirror symmetry, the Langlands program and enumerativ geometry.
Teaching & PhD
PhD StudentsRossinelli Ilaria, Vernet Tanguy François Jérôme,
This is an introductory course to the theory of curves and surfaces
Algebraic geometry is the common language for many branches of modern research in mathematics. This course gives an introduction to this field by studying algebraic curves and their intersection theory.
Topics in arithmetic geometry
P-adic numbers are a number theoretic analogue of the real numbers, which interpolate between arithmetics, analysis and geometry. In this course we study their basic properties and give various applications, notably we will prove rationality of the Weil Zeta function.
Student seminar in pure mathematics
In this seminar we will study the foundations of Knot theory, which studies entanglements of closed curves in three dimensional space. What seems like a simple subject in topology turns out to be a rich theory with applications to 3-manifolds, representation theory, physics and much more.
