My research is in number theory, more precisely diophantine geometry touching on topics like: rational points on varieties, heights, elliptic curves, unlikely intersections and connections to o-minimal geometry.

My teaching activities at the University of Basel.

Number Theory Web Seminar

Together with Michael Bennett (UBC) and Alina Ostafe (UNSW) I organize the online weekly Number Theory Web Seminar.

The offline Basel Number Theory seminar is currently on hold due to the pandemic.
