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 tell people that I am interested in model theory and/or/of complex geometry. My advisor is Tom Scanlon.
My office is in Evans Hall, room 745. My email address is not firstname.lastname@example.org, although it kind of is.
Spring 2014: Wow, there are a lot of people here.
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).
Spring 2014: Instructor for Math 375.
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).
