Math Ph.D. Candidate


I am a Ph.D. student studying logic and set theory. In particular, I’m interested in large cardinals, forcing, and inner model theory, and using these to establish equiconsistency results. More broadly I’m interested in the philosophy of mathematics, and its connections to set theoretic axioms and methods. My advisor is Grigor Sargsyan.

I will graduate in Spring 2023, so I will be on the job market.
