My research area is algebraic geometry and arithmetic algebraic geometry. My interests include abelian varieties, algebraic curves, moduli spaces, algebraic cycles, motives, and Shimura varieties.

I am managing editor of Compositio Mathematica, jointly with Bas Edixhoven (Leiden) and Burt Totaro (Cambridge). Submissions can be done through the Compositio websystem (preferred) or by sending the paper to one of the managing editors via e-mail.
On July 3, 2010 the first Compositio Prize was awarded.
Together with Gerard van der Geer I'm writing a book on Abelian Varieties. Preliminary versions of several chapters are available here.
In 1999 I gave a series of lectures at the Centre Emile Borel in Paris about Mumford-Tate groups and images of Galois representations. The notes that I wrote are not widely available, and the notes of the second half of the course only exist in handwritten form. Should I one day find the time for it, I will write up a better and more complete set of notes. For the time being, I simply post the pdf of the original notes of the first part of the course, even though the result is far from perfect. Comments are welcome!
There is another set of notes, corresponding to lectures I gave at a workshop in Monte Verità in 2004. Like the previous set, they should one day become part of a more complete text. For now, here are the original An introduction to Mumford-Tate groups.
