Education

I received my PhD in Pure Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 1990 under the supervision of Dr. Béla Bollobás.

Teaching

In Fall 2017 I teach Math 681 (Set Theory and Applications 1) and Math 793F (Introduction to Infinite Combinatorics).

Research

My research interests concentrate on infinite combinatorics and its connections with set theory, model theory and general topology. In particular, I am interested in general matroids, that is, matroids that are not necessarily finite. See here for the recent publications on this topic. Here is an article introducing the area.

For Interested PhD Students

If you are a graduate student considering writing PhD Thesis under my supervision, you need a strong background in linear algebra, theory of fields, graph theory, and general topology. You also need to be familiar with the basics of set theory (including cardinal arithmetic, ordinal numbers and transfinite induction). I expect you to pass PhD Entrance Exam in Topology and either Algebra or Real Analysis.
