Aperiodicity of translational tilings

Translational tiling is a covering of a space using translated copies of some building blocks, called the "tiles", without any positive measure overlaps. What are the possible ways that a space can be tiled?
The most well known conjecture in this area is the periodic tiling conjecture, which asserts that any tile of $\R^d$ (or $\Z^d$) admits a periodic tiling. In a joint work with Terence Tao, we construct a counterexample to this conjecture. In the talk, I will survey the study of the periodicity of tilings and discuss our recent progress.
