About me

I am a researcher in mathematics working in model theory and applications of model theory to concrete geometric settings. I have worked on several applications of geometric stability theory and Zilber's trichotomy to the study of transcendance properties for the solutions of algebraic differential equations. In my research, I have combined model-theoretic techniques with other techniques coming from more classical treatments of ordinary differential equations such as the theory of algebraic foliations and the classical real-analytic treatement of ordinary differential equations.

I am currently a Postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo where I am working with Professor Rahim Moosa . I obtained my Ph.D in June 2017 from the Départment de mathematiques d'Orsay, Université Paris Saclay under the supervision of Jean-Benoît Bost (Orsay) and Martin Hils (Münster). Here is a my recent Curriculum Vita .

Research interests: Geometric stability theory, Zilber's trichotomy, algebraic vector fields and foliations, ergodic properties of vector fields
