For a large class of isotrivial rational elliptic surfaces (with section), we show that the set of rational points is dense for the Zariski topology, by carefully studying variations of root numbers among the fibers of these surfaces. We also prove that these surfaces satisfy a variant of weak-weak approximation. Our results are conditional on the finiteness of Tate-Shafarevich groups for elliptic curves over the field of rational numbers. 
Rational points on elliptic K3 surfaces of quadratic twist type
In studying rational points on elliptic K3 surfaces of the form $f(t)y^2=g(x)$, where $f,g$ are cubic or quartic polynomials (without repeated roots), we introduce a condition on the quadraticExpand

Density of rational points on del Pezzo surfaces of degree one

Density of positive rank fibers in elliptic fibrations
