Binational doctoral degree (Cotutelle de thèse), with the advisors

Prof. Dr. Philippe Elbaz-Vincent , at the Institut Fourier, Université Joseph Fourier Grenoble, France

and Prof. Dr. Thomas Schick, Mathematisches Institut, Universität Göttingen, Germany.

Supported by a research grant of the Ministère de l'Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche, and partially supported by DFH-UFA grant CT-26-07-I and by a DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) grant.


The intensive computations award C3I has been attributed to this thesis.

The thesis was defended October 15th, 2010, Grenoble. It can be downloaded from the server TEL of the CNRS.

The iterated advisors of my advisors can be found in my mathematics genealogy graph.

I am grateful for a Research stay at the I3M Montpellier during my doctoral studies.

I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Organisation of conferences


8th of June, 2017, organised the Colloquium on the Geometry of Groups and Numbers at Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Institut Mathématique de Jussieu - Paris Rive Gauche.

In 2016, I have organised the Bianchi Modularity Workshop, in Luxembourg.

Jointly with Sejong Park, I did organise the conferences Groups in Galway 2014 and Groups in Galway 2015.

Also, I have been a member of the Local Organising Committee of the 30th Summer Conference on Topology and its Applications, 23-26 June 2015.
