I am a doctoral candidate in the Mathematics Department at UIUC. I am part of the logic group and I am interested in model theory and its applications. My advisor is Lou van den Dries.


I am interested in o-minimal structures and the model theory of valued fields and differential fields. At the moment, I am particularly interested in fields of transseries.
