Professor Alexei Skorobogatov is interested in arithmetic geometry, that is, in geometric approaches to number theory. The fundamental problem is to understand how the structure of solutions of Diophantine equations in number fields reflects the topological structure of the underlying algebraic variety. Alexei is also interested in analytical number theory, algebraic geometry, algebraic groups and the geometric invariant theory.
