Current teaching

This semester (2018-19 Spring semester) I am teaching Set theory (MTHE6003B) and Set theory with advanced topics (MTHE7003B). I am also module organiser for 2018-19 for MTHE6003B and MTHE70003B, for MTHA5001Y (Analysis), as well as for the Mathematics Dissertation (MTHA7029Y) module. My office hours are Wednesdays 10:30-11:30 and Thursdays 14:30-15:30.

PhD supervision

I am happy to supervise PhD theses in various flavours of set theory. Please contact me for any further details. Here are two short descriptions of specific PhD projects.

High Forcing Axioms

Cardinal Characteristics Above the Continuum


My work in mathematics is in set theory. I am mostly interested in infinite combinatorics, forcing, forcing axioms, large cardinals, definability issues, and the interactions between these areas.
