My research is centered around applications of combinatorial set theory and forcing to geometry, topology, algebra and analysis. However, I am also interested in finite combinatorics and complexity.
More specifically, I am working on questions concerning the classification of definable graphs on Polish spaces and on problems about automorphisms of the Boolean algebra and the Calkin algebra.

Former Research Area L Some consistent counterexamples to natural conjectures about the structure of the class of infinite compact spaces have been constructed [1].
It was shown that every closed graph on a Polish space either has a perfect clique or in a forcing extension of the settheoretic universe, the weak Borel chromatic number of the graph is small [2]. This dichotomy fails for graphs of higher complexity.
Together with coauthors, a cardinal invariant that allows a closer analysis of almost disjoint families on the natural numbers has been studied and models of set theory with different behaviours of this new cardinal invariant were constructed [3].
Together with a coauthor, methods from finite and countably infinite Ramsey theory have been used to obtain a dichotomy for the class of continuous colorings on Polish spaces, showing that a coloring is complicated in terms of its so called homogeneity number if and only if it contains a copy of one of finitely many complicated colorings [4].
Geschke and a coauthor proved Ramsey theoretic results in the finite and countably infinite that assert the existence of large homogeneous subgraphs whose automorphisms lift to automorphisms of the colored graph [5], starting the field of symmetric Ramsey theory.  Research Area KL
