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.
