Teaching 2017-2018

Here are slides, etc., of some of my talks (BMC 2001, BMC 2002, Dagstuhl 2004, Banff 2005, Belfast 2007, VU 2007, Utrecht 2009,...).

Research Information

My work is concentrated around algebraic K-theory, especially in the direction of Zagier's, Goncharov's and Beilinson's conjectures. It involves making K-groups more explicit, computing regulators and establishing relations between those regulators and the values of L-functions at certain points. Since this area relates to and uses techniques from number theory and arithmetic algebraic geometry, I also do research in those fields without any link to algebraic K-theory. As some of my work is computer based there are also algorithmic aspects to my research.

I was the scientist in charge of the Durham node in the EC network Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry that ended 31st January 2008. I was also associated with the Edinburgh node in the EC network Algebraic K-Theory, Linear Algebraic Groups and Related Structures, which finished 30th September 2006. Nowadays I take part in the The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) clusters DIAMANT and GQT.

Sander Dahmen also works in my research group.

Through the EC-funded Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry network, or through other sources of money (including EPSRC (UK) and NWO (The Netherlands), I had various postdocs, including Jean-Guillaume Grebet, Niklas Broberg, Ivan Horozov, Daniel Caro, Tejaswi Navilarekallu, Marco Streng, Deepam Patel, and Chun Yin Hui.

Currently I have three PhD students: Bogdan Banu, François Escriva, and Joey van Langen. Hang Liu visited me for the two years 2013 and 2014 while being a PhD student at the Graduate University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.


From time to time I have some visitors.

With some other people I organized a Stieltjes "onderwijsweek" in January 2010, where the topics were inspired by the lectures of Spencer Bloch as Stieltjes professor hosted by me in February and March 2010.

Together with Aravind Asok, José Burgos Gil, Charles Doran, Roy Joshua, Marc Levine, James D. Lewis and Ursula Whitcher I will run a semester on K-theory, algebraic cycles, and motivic homotopy theory at the Newton Institute in Cambridge, United Kingdom, in the first half of 2020.
