About Me

I am a sixth year PhD student in the Math Department of the University of Notre Dame. My current interests include model theory and its interactions with other areas of mathematics. In particular, I am interested in the model theory of fields, and in connections between model theory and algebraic geometry and number theory. I also have a soft spot for the foundations of physics.
My advisor is Anand Pillay.
