One of my most ambitious projects is to solve
Igusa's 1974 conjecture on exponential sums. The conjecture describes p-adic
exponential sums, i.e., exponential sums modulo powers of p, uniform in

Visits and honors:
During the spring term of 2014, I gave the Nachdiplom-Lectures at the ETH Zürich. I was a MSRI Research during part of the spring term 2014, Berkeley, California. I obtained an ERC Consolidator Grant with title "Motivic Mellin transforms and exponential sums through non-archimedean geometry" with ERC Grant Agreement nr. 615722 and acronym MOTMELSUM, 2014 - 2019.
The CNRS of France awarded me with a "prime d'excellence" in 2011.
Students of the KU Leuven nominated me for best teaching assistant in math. I was a Marie Curie Fellow at the ENS in Paris for two years from 2003 on. Further, outside of mathematics, I won a first prize on the Belgian, national contest "Axion Classics" for classical piano for adolescents in 1994.
Look at my favorite pianist Andrew Hill's website.
Other pianists I admire are
Abdullah Ibrahim, the young Vijay Iyer, and
for example the classical pianist
Sviatoslav Richter (see All Music Guide ).
I accompanied on the piano, in his debuting years 1992 - 1997,
Filip Jordens, who
is now a professional actor and singer. At that time, we performed Jacques Brel, and he still often
does. We were once guests in the studios of the national Belgian Radio 1 and
we were once the warming up program for Arno.
