### Biography

I am currently doing a PhD at the Chair of Arithmetic Geometry (ARG) of EPFL, under the supervision of Dimitri Wyss. My areas of interest are geometric representation theory and algebraic geometry. My research focuses on counts of quiver representations over rings of (truncated) power series and their links with p-adic integration, Donaldson-Thomas invariants of quivers and geometric realizations of quantum groups. See here for my resume.### Education

## Publications

### Selected publications

T. VernetIn this paper, I study counts of jets over the zero-fibre of quiver moment maps and their asymptotic behaviour. When the quiver is totally negative, I show that these counts converge to a p-adic integral, by proving that the corresponding fibre has rational singularities. I also generalise this result to a larger class of moduli spaces, which are locally modelled on quiver moment maps. |

T. VernetThis paper focuses on counts of absolutely indecomposable quiver representations over rings of power series, generalising Kac polynomials. When the rank vector has entries at most one, I prove that the polynomial counting these representations has non-negative coefficients. Moreover, I show that jet spaces over zero-fibres of toric quiver moment maps have pure equivariant cohomology and that their Poincaré polynomials can be computed from the higher depth version of Kac polynomials. This is reminiscent of PBW-type isomorphisms on preprojective cohomological Hall algebras. |
