Research Interests

My interests are in Logic and Computable Structure Theory. Initially, my research was in model theory, working on models of arithmetic and infinitary logic. Gradually, my interests shifted to computability, and I am interested in the relationship between computability and definability in familiar kinds of mathematical structures: linear orderings, vector spaces, etc. I am also interested in abstract problems on the technology used in this area.

My students have obtained results on computability questions about groups, Boolean algebras, and models of arithmetic.
