Research interests

My background is in model theory, part of mathematical logic with applications to algebra, but I have broad interests. Recently, I have become interested in the evolution of random processes, and in networks built by such processes. These are structures traditionally used by 'applied' mathematicians to model real-world phenomena (such as the emergence of racial segregation, or the growth of the internet). I am interested in what we might be able to say about such structures using the 'pure' mathematical language of combinatorics and logic.
