I am an editor for the Annals of Pure and Applied Logic. For submissions in computability and related areas, please go to the journal homepage. They should be at a level comparable to the level of the J. Symb. Logic.

1. I apply logical methods to algebraic structures, especially to

See e.g. the works Finite axiomatizability for profinite groups, with D. Segal and K. Tent, Proc. London Math. Soc., in press, and Describing finite groups by short first-order sentences. With K. Tent. Israel J. Mathematics 221 (2017), 85-115.

Here is a survey paper of results up to 2007: Describing Groups. Bull. Symb. Logic. 13 no 3 (2007), 305-339

2. I study the interplay of

For an overview of work up to 2010 see Interactions of Computability and Randomness, Proc.International Congress of Mathematicians, 2010. For more recent work see e.g. Coherent randomness tests and computing the K-trivial sets, with L. Bienvenu, N. Greenberg, A. Kucera, and D. Turetsky, J. European Math. Society 18 (2016), 773-812, and Computing from projections of random points: a dense hierarchy of subideals of the K-trivial degrees, with Noam Greenberg and Joseph S. Miller, Journal of Mathematical Logic 20, no. 01 (2020), 1950014.

3. I study

6. I haved studied structures that can be described by

7. In earlier papers (mostly 1994-2003, but a few up to 2012) I have investigated
