My research is at the intersection of number theory and algebraic geometry, and deals with the basic questions and structures that underly our modern understanding of diophantine equations. This concerns on the one hand the Langlands program, which connects objects from arithmetic geometry, such as elliptic curves over number fields, with analytic or topological objects, such as modular forms or the cohomology of hyperbolic manifolds. On the other hand, this concerns the cohomological invariants attached to arithmetic varieties themselves, which forms the subject of Hodge theory, or more particularly padic Hodge theory.
My own contributions to these questions include the construction of Galois representations associated for example with torsion classes on hyperbolic 3manifolds, and the development of a geometric framework underlying much of padic Hodge theory, in the form of perfectoid spaces. In the future, I plan to pursue these questions. In particular, building on perfectoid spaces, I want to transport some machinery from the geometric Langlands program to the case of padic fields, and I hope to use this to obtain new results on the local Langlands conjecture for general groups over padic fields. On the other hand, in work with Bhatt and Morrow, we found new cohomological invariants of arithmetic varieties, which lead to a surprising qdeformation of de Rham cohomology, which I plan to study further.


Research Area DE I obtained new results on the geometry of moduli spaces of abelian varieties, by showing that they attain the structure of a perfectoid space after increasing the level at p. This was used to obtain new results on modular and automorphic forms, and in particular on the relation of padic automorphic forms with Galois representations,[1]. Recently, we were able to give more precise bounds on the cohomological degrees in which torsion can appear [2], leading to potential automorphy results for elliptic curves over CM fields.
