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


In Fall 2019 I teach Math 683 (Set Theory and Applications) and Math 793A (Topology for Analysis).


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.
