Teaching
This Fall Semester, I am teaching MTH 231 at the College of Staten Island. I'm also running the Set Theory Seminar at the CUNY Graduate Center. The nylogic server we used previously to announce upcoming events is unstable right now, so that I created a small temporary Set Theory Seminar Page for that purpose.
Research Interests
 Set Theory
 Inner Model Theory
 Forcing, Forcing Axioms
 Applications of Set Theory in Algebra
