Check out a map of the model theory universe.
This semester I am at the Institut Henri Poincaré attending the Model Theory, Combinatorics and Valued Fields trimester program.
Research Interests
- Tame expansions of the group of integers and other stable groups; connections between the model theory of such expansions and additive combinatorics.
- Model theory of homogeneous structures, especially homogeneous metric spaces and metrically homogeneous graphs.
- General classification and dividing lines among unstable theories, especially unstable theories without the strict order property.
