Research

For the most part, my research is motivated by mathematically interesting objects and phenomena arising in studying canonical topological spaces and dynamics of large groups (usually equipped with a metric separable, complete topology but lacking Haar measure). This research is informed by mathematical logic, in particular, by set theory and model theory and involves in essential ways combinatorics (Ramsey theory), probability theory (concentration of measure), and algebraic topology (fixed point theorems).
