Curriculum vitae


My research interests lie in number theory and algebraic geometry. I am particularly interested in developing and proving motivic analogues of number-theoretic tools and results in the Grothendieck ring of varieties. In my thesis, I developed a notion of motivic Euler product and applied it to describe geometrically the asymptotic of moduli spaces of curves of high degree on equivariant compactifications of vector groups.


I am currently co-organizing an online seminar on rational points and related topics: Zoom on Rational Points

Past and future travel (real or virtual)

Les activités suivantes peuvent intéresser tout collégien ou lycéen aimant les mathématiques. Voici une sélection de cours que j'ai donnés à l'occasion de stages olympiques ainsi que de séances du club Parimaths: Attention: pour la plupart, ces textes n'ont servi qu'une fois. Ils peuvent donc encore contenir un certain nombre de coquilles.
