Junior Prof. Dr. Ariyan Javanpeykar

I obtained my PhD in June 2013 under the supervision of J.-B. Bost (Paris-Sud 11), Bas Edixhoven (Leiden), and Robin de Jong (Leiden). From July 2013 until November 2015 I was a post-doctoral fellow supported by the SFB/Transregio 45. Appointed as a (non tenure track) Junior Professor in Mainz, and I am currently on the job market. I was positively evaluated as a Junior Professor in May 2018, and therefore hold the equivalent of a Habilitation.

My research is concerned with Arakelov theory, Belyi's theorem, Lang-Vojta's conjecture on rational points, Kobayashi's notion of hyperbolicity, Shimura varieties, period domains, non-archimedean hyperbolicity, and
dynamical systems in arithmetic geometry. In my work I employ algebraic stacks, Hodge theory, and arithmetic geometry. In case you're interested, I gave a talk at the MSRI in which I summarize some recent results:
