I work mainly on elliptic curves over number fields. In particular I am interested in the arithmetic of Q-curves, namely elliptic curves over number fields that are geometrically isogenous to all of their Galois conjugates. I am also interested in the arithmetic of finite fields, and in particular in the properties of compositional monoids generated by a finite set of polynomials. Recently, I became interested in arithmetic dynamics and arboreal Galois representations.
