I have moved to Freiburg (DE). My new website is at: math.commelin.net.
I was a postdoc in the group of Carel Faber. My main interest lies in algebraic geometry and algebraic number theory.
From 2013 till 2017 I was a PhD student in Nijmegen, supervised by Ben Moonen.
Current research topics include: Hodge theory, Galois representations, motives, Mumford–Tate conjecture, periods.
On compatibility of the ℓ-adic realisations of an abelian motive.
The Mumford–Tate Conjecture for the Product of an Abelian Surface and a K3 Surface.

My PhD thesis: On ℓ-adic compatibility for abelian motives & the Mumford–Tate conjecture for products of K3 surfaces [Erratum]. Completed in the summer of 2017 under the supervision of Ben Moonen.
I wrote my master's thesis, titled Algebraic cycles, Chow motives, and L-functions, in the spring of 2013 under the supervision of Robin de Jong.
I wrote my bachelor's thesis, titled Tannaka Duality for Finite Groups, in the spring of 2011 under the supervision of Lenny Taelman.
- Superficie algebriche. (Together with Pieter Belmans.) le superficie algebriche is a tool for studying numerical invariants of minimal algebraic surfaces over the complex numbers. We implemented it in order to better understand the Enriques–Kodaira classification, and to showcase how mathematics can be visualised on the web. (A local clone with a more advanced UI.)
- Sloganerator. Together with Pieter Belmans I wrote a web-app that makes it easy to suggest slogans for tags (results) in the Stacks Project.
