RosaWinter
I am a research associate in the Number Theory Group of King's College London, working with Rachel Newton.

From 2020 until 2021 I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Nonlinear Algebra group at MPI-MiS in Leipzig. Before this I was a PhD student under the supervision of Martin Bright and Ronald van Luijk at Universiteit Leiden. In my thesis I worked on the density of rational points and the configurations of lines on del Pezzo surfaces of degree one, and their relation to torsion points on elliptic fibrations.
