Current teaching

This semester (2017-18 Spring semester) I am teaching Computability theory, as part of the Topics in Pure Mathematics (MTHF5001Y) module. I am also module organiser for 2017-18 for the Analysis (MTHA5001Y) module, as well as for MTHF5001Y and for the Mathematics Dissertation (MTHA7029Y) module. My office hours this semester are Tuesdays 15:30-16:30 and Wednesdays 10:30-11:30.

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.
