Arnaud Vilpert

Born in Geneva, I grew up in a small French village next to the Swiss border (I am binational). I obtained my Master's degree from the Chair of Algebraic Geometry at EPFL under the supervision of Javier Carvajal-Rojas. Before this, I got my Bachelor's degree at EPFL. I am currently a first year Ph.D. student at the University of Warwick interested in algebraic geometry.

Le Mont Blanc. Highest summit in Europe, located in my department: la Haute-Savoie.

Le Mont Blanc. Prior to coming to England, I used to trail run in Haute-Savoie and enjoy this kind of stunning panoramas!
