I am a postdoc researcher in Number Theory and specifically in Arithmetic Geometry. My PhD thesis, called Ribet bimodules, specialization of Heegner points and applications, studies the reduction of certain points on modular and Shimura curves. Currently I’m interested in Iwasawa theory p-adic L-functions. Previous positions: Beatriu de Pinós postdoc researcher at UPC in 2014, AFR postdoc at University of Luxembourg in 2013 and postdoc at University of Bielefeld (Germany) form 2011 to 2013.

Research Interests

Shimura curves, automorphic forms, Galois representations, L-functions, Iwasawa theory
