I am Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Einstein Institute of Mathematics of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, under the supervision of Prof. Saharon Shelah. I work in mathematical logic. My current research interests are:
  • Model theory/Descriptive set theory: classification theory, stability theory, geometric model theory, Hrushovski constructions, model theory of groups, model theory of planes, homogeneous model theory, combinatorial model theory, automorphism groups, Polish groups, invariant descriptive set theory.
  • Algebra/Combinatorics: combinatorial and geometric group theory, algebraic combinatorics, incidence structures, projective planes, matroid theory, graph theory.
