Research Interests:

Steve VanDenDriessche is interested in mathematical logic, primarily computability theory and model theory. Computability theory, also known as recursion theory, is the abstract study of algorithms, complexity, and definability. Model theory is very broad, but includes the study of formal languages, mathematical structures, and their relations to one another. This includes again, notions of definability in formal systems. Steve is particularly interested in computable structure theory, an area of overlap, utilizing both computability and model theory.
