I'm a PhD student in the Group in Logic and the Methodology of Science, at the University of California, Berkeley. I joined the group in the fall of 2010. Before that, I earned my undergraduate degree with a specialist in math and physics, and a major in philosophy, at the University of Toronto.
I think I like model theory.
My office is in Evans Hall, room 745, and my hours are Tuesdays 3:30 to 4:30 and Fridays 2 to 3. My email address is not myfirstname at math dot berkeley dot edu, although it kind of is.
Fall 2013: Math 290 Model Theory Seminar (Scanlon). This term I'm mostly learning about the model theory of complex geometry. I'm also participating in a reading group on stable group theory.
Summer 2013: I went to a logic conference in Waterloo (not that one) and a model theory conferenza in Ravello.
Spring 2013: Math 290 Model Theory Seminar (Scanlon), Math 299 Reading Course (Scanlon; more Buechler and Fulton's Algebraic Curves). I also took my qualifying exams (syllabus).
Fall 2012: Math 290 Model Theory Seminar (Scanlon), Math 299 Reading Course (Scanlon; Buechler's Essential Stability Theory). I also organized the logic teas.
Summer 2012: I passed my prelims. I also attended a model theory summer workshop at MSRI.
Spring 2012: Math 229 Theory of Models (Scanlon, geometric stability theory), Math 290 Model Theory Seminar (Scanlon), Philos 299 Reading Course (Mancosu).
Fall 2011: Math 256A Algebraic Geometry (Olsson, audit), Math 290 Model Theory Seminar (Scanlon), Philos 290 Logic, Epistemology and Natural Language (Yalcin), Stability Learning Seminar (Medvedev).
Summer 2011: Model theory conférence in Oléron, France. I also spent time learning material for my prelims.
Spring 2011: Math 225B Metamathematics (Harrington), Math 229 Theory of Models (Harrington, stability theory), Math 299 Reading Course (Scanlon; reading little Hodges). I also sat in on some philosophy classes, and talked with various people about basic model theory (Medvedev; continuing little Hodges) and recursion theory.
Fall 2010: Math 225A Metamathematics (Scanlon), Math 250A Groups, Rings & Fields (Ogus), Math 300 Teaching Workshop (Ribet).
Fall 2013: GSI for Math 55 (S. Evans).
Spring 2013: GSI for Math 16B (Demmel).
Fall 2012: GSI for Math 16A (Woodin/Harrison).
Spring 2012: GSI for Math 1B (Simic).
Fall 2011: GSI for Math H1B (Talaska).
Spring 2011: GSI for Math 16B (Judson).
Fall 2010: GSI for Math 1B (Jones).
I'm organizing logic teas this year, and preparers can find instructions here.
If you're in the logic group and are preparing for the foundations prelim, you might find some useful information here.
