Welcome!


I am Professor of Mathematics at the George Washington University where I teach a wide range of advanced and introductory courses.
 
Taught five Dean's Seminars for Freshmen, including Language and Logic in Fall 2018.
 
Research areas are: computable model theory and computable algebra, computability theory, and theoretical computer science.
 
Research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, Simons Foundation, and Columbian College Dean's Chair.
