In the past several decades, it has been established that numerous fundamental invariants in physics and geometry can be expressed in terms of the so-called Witten-Kontsevich intersection numbers. In this talk, I will present a novel approach for calculating their large genus asymptotics. Our technique is based on a resurgent analysis of the n-point functions of such intersection numbers, which are computed using determinantal formulae and depend significantly on the presence of an underlying ODE. I will show how, with this approach, we are able to extend the recent results of Aggarwal with the computation of all subleading corrections. If time permits, I will also explain how the same technique can be applied to address other enumerative problems. Based on a joint work with B. Eynard, E. Garcia-Failde, P. Gregori, D. Lewanski.
