There should be a picture here...

I'm interested in arithmetic geometry - in particular, in obstructions to arithmetic properties of rational points and 0-cycles of degree 1 on nice varieties over number fields. In September 2017, I completed my DPhil at University of Oxford under the supervision of Victor Flynn. I'm now doing research at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn.
