I am a postdoc in the group of Stefan Kebekus. My main interest lies in algebraic geometry and algebraic number theory.

From 2017 till 2018 I was a postdoc of Carel Faber in Utrecht (NL). From 2013 till 2017 I was a PhD student in Nijmegen (NL), supervised by Ben Moonen.

Current research topics include: applications of o-minimality to algebraic geometry/topology; in particular, applications of o-minimality to the theory of periods and motives.

- My paper
(with Rob Y. Lewis) on our
formalisation of the ring of Witt vectors
has received a
*Distinguished Paper Award*. - My work (with Kevin Buzzard and Patrick Massot) on formalising perfectoid spaces in the Lean theorem prover was recently mentioned in a Quanta article on Lean and its mathematics library mathlib. For more information on mathlib and the community around it, see our community website.
- 13–17 July 2020, we've had an online workshop on the Lean theorem prover for curious mathematicians: LftCM 2020. It was a great success!

My PhD thesis: On ℓ-adic compatibility for abelian motives & the Mumford–Tate conjecture for products of K3 surfaces [Erratum]. Completed in the summer of 2017 under the supervision of Ben Moonen.

I wrote my master's thesis, titled Algebraic cycles, Chow motives, and L-functions, in the spring of 2013 under the supervision of Robin de Jong.

I wrote my bachelor's thesis, titled Tannaka Duality for Finite Groups, in the spring of 2011 under the supervision of Lenny Taelman.

- Lean and its mathematical library. I am one of the maintainers of the mathematical library of the Lean theorem prover.
- Superficie algebriche. (Together with Pieter Belmans.) le superficie algebriche is a tool for studying numerical invariants of minimal algebraic surfaces over the complex numbers. We implemented it in order to better understand the Enriques–Kodaira classification, and to showcase how mathematics can be visualised on the web.
- Sloganerator. Together with Pieter Belmans I wrote a web-app that makes it easy to suggest slogans for tags (results) in the Stacks Project.
