I'm a postdoc at IHES. Previously, I was a Ph.D. student at the London School of Geometry and Number Theory, working in Arithmetic Geometry under the supervision of Prof. A. Yafaev. My Ph.D. thesis is available here.


I am mainly interested in Shimura varieties, André-Oort conjecture, Functional Transcendence (Ax-Schanuel type results), O-minimality and variations of Hodge structures, Galois representations (of number fields), Abelian varieties, K3 surfaces, motives and rational points.
