I work principally in the field of arithmetic geometry, lying somewhere between algebraic geometry and number theory. I am especially interested in cohomological and homotopical methods, and a lot of my work involves combining techniques from geometry and algebra to answer essentially arithmetic questions. I spend a lot of time in particular thinking about the behaviour of $$p$$-adic invariants in characteristic $$p$$, and what these invariants can tell us about Diophantine geometry. I am currently a post-doc with Lenny Taelman at the Korteweg-de Vries Institute in Amsterdam.
