I am an editor for the Annals of Pure and Applied Logic. I invite submissions, at a level comparable to the level of the JSL.

With Katrin Tent and Eamonn O'Brien, I will be organising a research programme "Logic and algorithms in group theory", Sept - Dec 2018 at the Hausdorff Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, Germany.

External Speakers: Marco Tomamichel (UTS, minicourse), Willem Fouche (Unisa), Anuradha Mahasinghe (University of Colombo).

Talks by Cristian Calude and myself.

My recent interests include the connection of randomness to

I apply logical methods to algebraic structures, especially to groups. A recent paper in this direction: Describing finite groups by short first-order sentences. With Katrin Tent. Israel J. Mathematics, to appear.

I haved studied structures that can be described by
