Hello! I'm Victor Saunier, currently pursing a PhD in the Algebraic Topology team of Université Sorbonne Paris Nord, under the supervision of Yonatan Harpaz. I am a part of his 5-year ERC project on Foundations of Motivic Real K-theory and my interests span all things K-theory, with a distinct taste for higher categorical ideas. The goal of my thesis is to bring the celebrated Dundas-Goodwillie-McCarthy theorem to the context of stable ∞-categories and provide a proof for it which is purely ∞-categorical in its flavour.
Preprints & Papers
Untitled manuscript on the universal property of THH with coefficients and its consequences, joint with Yonatan Harpaz and Thomas Nikolaus. Upcoming (and likely to split in multiple papers).
