Research
I am currently an assistant professor (maître de conférences) in ParisSaclay university since september 2019, where I am working in the Laboratoire de Mathématiques d'Orsay (LMO) and more specifically in the Arithmetic and Algebraic Geometry group.
I defended my PhD thesis in June 2017 under the supervision of Régis de la Bretèche at Paris 7 university in the Number theory team of the Mathematical Institute of Jussieu before spending one year as a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institut für Mathematik between September 1, 2017 and August 31, 2018. I was then a postdoctoral fellow at IST Austria between september 2018 and August 2019, working with Tim Browning and member of the Browning Group.
I am working mainly at the interface between number theory (and especially analytic number theory) and arithmetic geometry. My research is mainly focused on the existence and distribution of rational points on algebraic varieties.
