Personal profile

Academic Background

Please see my personal webpage - https://www.logiqueconsult.eu - for a full list of my publications (including those listed in the 'outputs' section on this page).

I work in mathematical logic, more specifically in set theory and its relations with other subjects of mathematics. For example, I have done work in model theory, topology, measure theory, Banach space theory, combinatorics and the theory of orders. I am also interested in connections with computer sciences and philosophy. 

Biography

My research interest is in mathematical logic, specifically set theory and its connections with other fields of mathematics, such as model theory, topology, measure theory, analysis and combinatorics.

Within set theory, I have mostly worked on forcing, large cardinals, pcf theory and infinite combinatorics, but other subjects interest me as well. Outside of set theory, I am interested in logic as a modeling tool in a wide range of topics.

Key Research Interests and Expertise

My research interest is in mathematical logic, specifically set theory and its connections with other fields of mathematics, such as model theory, topology, measure theory, analysis and combinatorics.

Within set theory, I have mostly worked on forcing, large cardinals, pcf theory and infinite combinatorics, but other subjects interest me as well. Outside of set theory, I am interested in logic in a wide range of contexts, including computer sciences and philosophy.

I have recently started being interested in history of mathematics.

Teaching Interests

On the research level, I have a number of possible Ph.D. projects, ranging through various areas of mathematics: set theory, infinite combinatorics, including the theory of graphons, mathematical analysis and topology, model theory and foundations of mathematics. After looking at my publications list, interested students should contact me by email to discuss common interests.

On the taught level, I enjoy teaching with classical methods (blackboard!) and the modern ones (Blackboard, Web modules, Internet based) and try to use the combination of those in my teaching style.

I want the students in my class to feel as if they are in the Plato Academy, we are all there to learn and everybody on their own pace.

Specialisms

Set theory; infinitary combinatorics; mathematical logic; applications of set theory.
