About me

I am a 6th year Ph.D. student in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. I expect to receive my degree in May 2021, under the direction of Rami Grossberg.

My research is in model theory, an area of mathematical logic. I work in pure model theory and in finding connections between model theory and algebra. My research focuses primarly on abstract elementary classes (AECs). AECs are a semantic generalization of the model theory of infinitary logics like L_\infinity,\omega(Q) and its fragments. Some natural examples of AECs that I have studied are: torsion abelian groups with pure embeddings, flat modules with pure embeddings and absolutely pure modules with embeddings. None of these are first-order axiomatizable. CV , Publication list with abstracts.
