I am an independent research fellow at University College London, having recently moved from Leibniz Universität Hannover. In 2019, I received my PhD from Imperial College London. Previously, I studied at the Universities of Cambridge and Heidelberg.

Research interests
I work at the intersection of algebraic geometry and number theory on the behaviour of rational points on algebraic varieties. My past research interests have included arithmetic of K3 surfaces, zero-cycles, Brauer-Manin obstruction, density of rational points and p-adic geometry.
Publications and preprints
Past papers of mine have appeared under the author name Damián Gvirtz.
Perfectoid Covers of Abelian Varieties (with Clifford Blakestad, Ben Heuer, Daria Schedrina, Koji Shimizu, Peter Wear and
Zijian Yao)
36 pages, accepted in Mathematical Research Letters.
Topics in the arithmetic of hypersurfaces and K3 surfaces PhD thesis, Imperial College, November 2019.
I co-founded and organised the London Junior Number Theory Seminar. Here is the old webpage.
A Horizontal Introduction to Algebraic Stacks: An expository essay I wrote on algebraic stacks. None of the content is original but I have been told that it is a useful resource to learn the notorious subject.
Every week I sang with other mathematicians, mostly early music. If you live in the London area, why not join?
