“My field of research is Algebraic and Arithmetic Geometry. In particular I am interested in questions regarding degenerations, arithmetic and moduli of algebraic varieties. Much of my current research concerns Motivic Zeta Functions associated to degenerations of special varieties such as curves, abelian varieties, K3 surfaces, Calabi-Yau varieties and Hyperkaehler varieties”, Lars explain.
