I will discuss joint work with Laura DeMarco and Hexi Ye in which we use dynamically-inspired techniques towards a conjecture of Bogomolov-Fu-Tschinkel asserting a uniform bound on the number of common torsion points of distinct elliptic curves. I will explain our strategy, which has general application to proving uniform bounds in unlikely intersections, and how this theorem implies a uniform bound on the number of torsion images in their Jacobians for a family of genus 2 curves. No dynamical background will be assumed.
