I am a logician, my speciality is set theory. Problems that interests me often have to do with the fascinating possibility of solving questions in various subjects using the same fundamental techniques of logic.
I started my career in mathematics by mathematical competitions and olympiads. Having graduated from the Mathematical Gymnasium in Sarajevo (ex-Yugoslavia) in 1984, I got my B.Sc. at the University of Sarajevo in 1988 and M.A. in 1990 and Ph.D. in 1993 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (USA). I had two years of postdoc at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel) 1993-1995 and then was an Assistant Professor at the the University of Wisconsin-Madison (USA) 1995-1998. Since 1998 I am at the University of East Anglia (Norwich) where I now hold the post of Professor. I have held a Forhheimer Postdoctoral Fellowship 1994, EPSRC Advanced Fellowship 2001-2007, Leverhulme Trust Fellowship 2014-105 and have had a number of doctoral students. I am a member of the Ecole Doctorale at Paris 1.
