Research Interests

I am interested primarily in applications of logic – specifically, model theory – to real analytic geometry, geometric measure theory, asymptotic analysis and questions of differentiability and analyticity of real functions. My research involves studying sets and functions that are definable in "well-behaved'' (e.g., o-minimal) first-order structures on the field of real numbers. Determining which structures should be regarded as well behaved is part of the job.
