Information on classes from previous terms is available here.

I am currently working on computable model theory. Some preprints are listed below. Other preprints may be found here.

  • "Metric structures and probabilistic computation," Theoretical Computer Science 412 (2011), 2766--2755. pdf
  • "Degrees of isomorphism types of geometric objects," with V. Harizanov and A. Shlapentokh, Computability 3 (2014), 105--134. pdf
  • "PAC Learning, VC Dimension, and the Arithmetic Hierarchy," Archive for Mathematical Logic 54 (2015), 871--883. pdf

I am glad to talk with students about the possibility of undergraduate or graduate research projects. I am open to thinking about a broad range of topics, but some ideas for graduate thesis work may be found here

  • I am currently participating in A Community of Problem Solvers: Teachers Leading Problem-Based Learning in Southern Illinois, a Noyce Master Teaching Fellows program funded by the National Science Foundation. I have also been involved in other K-12 STEM education professional development programs. I am available for separately arranged professional development programs. Contact me if you are interested in arranging something for your school.

  • I also worked in several service capacities while a graduate student at Notre Dame in the academic years 2000-2005. Information on some of these activities may be found here.
