Title:  Motivic specialization and rationality problems

Abstract:   I will discuss an ongoing project with John Christian Ottem to find new examples of stably irrational hypersurfaces by combining the specialization results obtained with Evgeny Shinder with tropical compactification techniques. The guiding example will be the quartic fivefold.
