“If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.” — John von Neumann

Welcome to my blog! I am a mathematician working in the area of mathematical logic, which studies the foundations of mathematics. My two favorite branches of mathematical logic are set theory and models of Peano Arithmetic. Set theory studies the properties of sets, which are the building blocks of all other mathematical objects. Models of Peano Arithmetic studies structures which share the same fundamental properties as the natural numbers, but look and behave crazy different from them. My CV is here.

I am a co-organizer of the CUNY Set Theory Seminar at the Graduate Center. Please contact me if you are interested in giving a talk. I am a webmester for NYLogic, the CUNY Logic seminars website. Contact me with any questions/suggestions for the website. Many CUNY logic talks can be found on the NYlogic YouTube channel. Follow CUNY logic seminars .
