Maarten Derickx
About meI'm Maarten Derickx. I'm currently a postdoc at the university of Groningen and will join the Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation at MIT sometime in 2018. I received my Ph.D. at the universities of Leiden, Bordeaux and Milano as an joint Algant doctorate .

Projects
I help with the developement of Sage and maintain the sage server at Leiden university. I keep all my reusable sage and magma functions in two separate packages called MDSage (documentation) and MDMagma. Together with Solomon Vishkautsan I wrote a magma package called Chabauty that helps with doing explicit Chabauty computations.Publications
