Research in Number Theory
Chi cerca trova, chi ricerca ritrova (Ennio De Giorgi).
I work in the areas of Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry because I study algebraic groups defined over number fields.
The aim of my research is twofold: firstly, understanding how the properties of algebraic groups and their points can be (algorithmically) detected from their reductions; secondly, making progress in Kummer theory.
From a review: Kummer extensions of number fields, a topic of significant classical interest and enduringly broad appeal in number theory.
