I am a number theorist working at the interface of analytic number theory and Diophantine geometry, interested in questions about rational points on algebraic varieties over non-closed fields.

PhD projects

I am interested in all aspects of analytic number theory, with a special emphasis on problems that lie at the interface with Diophantine geometry. My research in this area involves developing analytic tools (such as sieve methods or the Hardy-Littlewood circle method) to study the density (or existence) of rational (or integral) points on algebraic varieties. My interests would suit anyone looking to work in analytic number theory, broadly interpreted, or anyone interested in combining tools from analytic number theory with concepts from algebraic geometry. I am happy to discuss further details of possible projects in this area by email, some indication of which can also be found on my web page.
