Research interests

My work deals mainly with the geometry of abelian varieties and their arithmetic reduction properties in particular regarding semi-stability. My interests include weak approximation for rational points and inverse Galois problems (e.g. Grunwald problems). I started more recently to develop a project on the moduli stacks of curves and on the stable reduction and arithmetic properties of their special loci.
