Research Articles

My main research area is Banach space theory but, I have some work in real analysis and know some descriptive set theory as it applies to Banach space theory. In particular, I study the geometry of infinite dimensional Banach spaces and bounded linear operators between Banach spaces. Most of my work has focused on constructing Banach spaces with very rigid structure and using methods from descriptive set theory to study operators between Banach spaces.
