This picture was taken at the 2008 Galway Colloquium.
Some other recent photos of me and many of my fellow topologists can be found at
J. Vaughan's seminar page.
You can also watch me delivering a talk on limits in several variables on
YouTube.
This was one of a series of lectures in higher mathematics known as the Carolina Math Seminar.
Another lecture on the same occasion was given by one of my former Ph.D. students,
Laszlo Zsilinszky (1998).
Ph.D., Carnegie-Mellon University, 1971 Research interests include: point-set topology, especially covering and base
properties of regular spaces, and the structure theory of locally compact
spaces; the application of special axioms from set
theory to constructing examples and establishing consistency and
independence results; and applications of point-set topology, especially
to Boolean algebras and functional analysis.

of some of my research interests.
