Research
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow for one year at Max Planck Institut für Mathematik starting the first september 2017 and I will be a postdoctoral fellow for two years at Bristol university starting the first september 2018, working with Tim Browning.
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.
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 distribution of rational points on algebraic varieties.
Documents
First, a Curriculum Vitae.
Then, some mathematics :
