Research Interests

"Broadly speaking, I’m interested in p-adic phenomena in number theory and algebraic geometry. I especially enjoy thinking about p-adic Hodge theory, the geometry and cohomology of p-adic analytic spaces, and p-adic aspects of the Langlands program.

The fields of p-adic geometry and p-adic Hodge theory were both invented by Tate in the 1960’s. Within the last decade, these fields have changed significantly, on the heels of two revolutionary developments:

1) Fargues and Fontaine’s discovery of the “fundamental curve of p-adic Hodge theory” (also known as the Fargues-Fontaine curve), and their redevelopment of much of classical p-adic Hodge theory inside the study of vector bundles on this curve.

2) Scholze’s discovery of the theory of perfectoid spaces, and their rapid application by Scholze and others to a number of outstanding problems.

Simultaneously with these developments, relative p-adic Hodge theory has reached a state of maturity, and the community has come to appreciate Huber’s theory of adic spaces as the correct framework for studying “non-Noetherian p-adic analytic spaces.” I’ve recently been working to find applications of all these new tools and ideas, and on foundational questions around adic spaces and perfectoid spaces. I’m also quite interested in Scholze’s new theory of diamonds and its applications."
