### Teaching

I am new to Oxford from New York, but I look forward to teaching at University College.

When teaching logic, I aim to show students the enormous breadth of the subject — it encompasses truth, meaning, definability, provability, possibility, computability, and more — while also helping to develop the student’s ability to engage with sometimes technical ideas, ultimately using the power they provide to express oneself clearly and precisely. In an honest back-and-forth exchange, I aim that we arrive together at a deeper understanding of the topic.
