**Research Interests**

My research interests are Set Theory, Ramsey Theory, Topology, and Boolean Algebras, with applications to Discrete Mathematics and Analysis. Earlier works investigated relationships between random reals, eventually dominating functions, measure, generalized weak distributive laws, infinitary two-player games, and complete embeddings of the Cohen algebra into complete Boolean algebras. Current projects include developing canonical Ramsey theory, especially in regard to topological Ramsey spaces, and applications to classifications of Tukey and Rudin-Keisler structures in topological spaces.
