Professor of Mathematics

Publications

*Foundations of mathematics; mathematical logic and set theory;
their interactions with analysis, dynamical systems and
combinatorics*. Recent projects include the study of
foundational and set theoretic questions, and the application of
the methodology and results of descriptive set theory, in
classical real analysis, harmonic analysis, dynamical systems
(especially ergodic theory and topological dynamics), model
theory, and combinatorics.
