I’m a PhD student in Logic and the Methodology of Science at UC Berkeley. Earlier, I earned my undergraduate degree with a specialist in math and physics, and a major in philosophy, at the University of Toronto.

My current research is on the model theory of almost complex manifolds. These are generalizations of complex manifolds, and my goal is to come up with an analogue of the model theory of compact complex manifolds. The strategy is to use the theory of pseudoholomorphic curves to adapt Peterzil and Starchenko’s o-minimal study of complex geometry to the almost complex case. My advisor is Tom Scanlon.

My office is in room 1065 of Evans Hall, and my email address is almost myfirstname@math.berkeley.edu. My office hours this term are on Mondays from 3:30 to 5:30.
