Emil Jacobsen

I am a PhD student of Joseph Ayoub at the University of Zürich, working in algebraic geometry. Before this, I pursued my master's degree at KTH and Stockholm University, under the mentorship of Wushi Goldring.

Algebraic Geometry Seminar — University of Zürich.

Interests: algebraic and arithmetic geometry, motives, Hodge theory, algebraic groups, Tannakian categories, monodromy, fundamental groups, nearby cycles, six functors,


  • On the Picard-Lefschetz formula. Work in progress, joint with Ran Azouri.

  • Towards motivic exodromy. Work in progress.
