Research Interests

My research reaches very diverse topics in number theory and Diophantine approximation. I have worked in three different areas in number theory and their interrelations: the theory of modular forms, the theory of continued fractions and reduced binary quadratic forms, and the theory of complex multiplication. Since my postdoctoral position I have been working also in metric number theory, particularly in the p-adic Littlewood conjecture and in the sets of badly approximable numbers (and their intersection with manifolds) in twisted Diophantine approximation.

I am co-organising the Number Theory seminar
