I study Group Theory and Mathematical Logic. Specifically, within group theory, I am interested in Geometric Group Theory, Combinatorial Group Theory, Random Groups, Nilpotent Groups, Word Maps (for example, see Lubotzky's work), Growth of Groups, Free Groups; within logic, I am interested in Computability Theory, Computable Structure Theory, Scott Sentences and Index Sets (for example, see the joint work of Calvert, Harizanov, Knight, and Miller), Model Theory. I am also naturally interested in any combinations of the above.
I am on the job market this year (for jobs starting Fall/Summer 2020.)
4. The Probability Distribution of Word Maps on Finite Groups, with William Cocke, J. Algebra, to appear.
5. The Word Problem of Z^m Is a Multiple-Context Free Language, Groups Complex. Cryptol. 10 (2018), no. 1, 9–15.
6. On Optimal Scott Sentences of Finitely Generated Algebraic Structures, with Matthew Harrison-Trainor, Proc. Amer. Math. Soc. 146 (2018), no. 10, 4473–4485.
9. Describing Groups, Proc. Amer. Math. Soc. 145 (2017), no. 5, 2223-2239
