Research

There cannot be only finitely many prime numbers, otherwise their product plus one would not have any prime divisor.

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 understanding how the properties of algebraic groups and their points can be (algorithmically) detected from their reductions.
